Egypt congratulated on Friday the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for its election to the UN Security Council for 2022-2023.

“We express our sincere congratulations to the UAE on the election to non-permanent membership at the UN Security Council during the elections on Friday at the UN General Assembly,” foreign ministry spokesman Ahmed Hafez said in a tweet.

The UAE, Albania, Brazil, Ghana and Gabon were elected to the UN Security Council for two terms after a 193-nation secret ballot by the UN General Assembly.

Each candidate needed two-thirds of the votes to secure one of the non-permanent 10-member seats, with the UAE receiving 179.

This will be the Gulf country’s second time at the council after serving from 1986 to 1987.
