Indonesia replaces Kazakhstan in Asia-Pasific Group as non-permanent member of UNSC.

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Kazakhstan Ambassador to Indonesia Askhat Orazbay asks Indonesia to continue to focus on global stability after its election as new non-permanent member of the U.N. Security Council for 2019-2020. The fact that Indonesia has been elected four times as non permanent member of the Security Council indicated international recognition of the role Jakarta could play in promoting global peace, Askhat said.

Indonesia was non permanent member of the Security Council in 1973-1974, 1995-1996, and 2007-2008.

Indonesia will replace Kazakhstan to represent the Asia-Pacific. Kazakhstan will end its term as non permanent member of the Security Council by 31 December 2018 and Indonesia will take over on January 1, in 2019.

Ambassador Askhat said, Indonesia and his country share the same view on major international issues such as reconciliation in Afghanistan, Palestine-Israeli conflict, Syria crisis which are the main priority in the Security Council.

"Including strengthening global stability, coping with terrorism, radicalism and extremism," he said in a written statement received here on Tuesday.

He said Kazakhstan and Indonesia established diplomatic relations in June, 25 years earlier.
