Greece has been elected as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the 2025-26 term, securing 182 votes out of 188 participating countries on Thursday, June 6.

“Today is a historic day for Greece, for our country’s imprint in the world. The UN General Assembly voted predominantly in favour of our country. This is a great success. This shows the important capital that Greece has in the world, in the international environment,” stressed Foreign Affairs Minister George Gerapetritis.

In a post on platform X, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “Greece understands the great international responsibility. We will work along with UN member-states to strengthen peace & security and ensure that global governance can effectively address emerging challenges.”

Alongside Greece, Denmark, Pakistan, Panama, and Somalia also secured seats for the 2025-26 term on the Security Council.

The five elected members will commence their term on January 1, replacing Mozambique, Japan, Ecuador, Malta, and Switzerland, whose two-year terms conclude on December 31.

All five countries have previous experience on the Security Council: Pakistan seven times, Panama five times, Denmark four times, Greece twice, and Somalia once.
