Romania loses competition for a seat at UN Security Council. MAE Excuse: Campaign started too late

de Iulian Soare , 10.6.2019

Romania lost to Estonia in the final vote to get the non-permanent member position within the UN Security Council for the period 2020-2021.

On Friday, Estonia won the UN General Assembly’s decisive round by 132 votes, while Romania was supported by only 58 countries, according to Mediafax.

President Klaus Iohannis “noted with regret that Romania was not elected (…) despite the efforts of the Romanian diplomacy”, but accused “a number of undiplomatic, irresponsible and counterproductive political statements, contrary to traditional foreign policy positions of the state, formulated by some high-level representatives of the Romanian authorities without any mandate and outside their competencies“, according to a press release issued by the Presidency.

The head of state referred to Arab states’ votes lost, following the statements made by Prime Minister Dancila and PSD leader Liviu Dragnea regarding the transfer of the Romanian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Political statements incriminated “have led to the alienation of the support already expressed by some partner states and to a reluctance to Romania’s candidacy. Diplomatic efforts have thus been boycotted, as it was created the impression, erroneous in substance, of a lack of predictability regarding Romania in some extremely important, sensitive and complex foreign policy files,” the Presidency’s statement also said.

In turn, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE) explains the failure by saying that “Romania engaged in this campaign at a later stage, practically starting 2017, in the desire to contribute to strengthening the UN’s unique role” (…), the MAE release says.

Stake

The reputation and diplomatic strength of a country at the global level are confirmed including by its election among the non-permanent members of the UN Security Council, which join the permanent members, the five big powers that also have the right to vote resolutions: US, Russia, France, UK and China.

Romania has been part of the UN Security Council four times in 1962 and between 1976-1977, 1990-1991 and 2004-2005.

According to the Foreign Ministry, Romania has initiated and participated in the adoption of some resolutions regarding, among others, international peace and security; fight against racial discrimination; UN peacekeeping operations; speeding up progress in science and technology, to mention just a few themes.

In the last mandate, conducted in 2004-2005, Romania proved its ability to adapt to the complex landscape and rapidly changing global challenges and to propose solutions, from a new focus on preventive diplomacy to post-conflict reconstruction and the increase of the UN system efficiency.
