Kenyatta asks for Caribbean support in Kenya’s bid for UN Security Council seat

President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged the Caribbean community to support Kenya’s bid for the United Nations Security Council  non-permanent seat for the period 2021 to 2022.

The President made the appeal as he pitched for closer cooperation among African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries to spur development and economic growth.

The Head of State, who was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma, spoke during a meeting with leaders of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Kenya will host the next session of the ACP-EU Cotonou Agreement Summit in December this year in Nairobi.
