Canada’s foreign minister travels to New York ahead of vote for UN Security Council seat

By Caribbean News Global fav

OTTAWA, Canada – Minister of foreign affairs, François-Philippe Champagne, will travel on an official mission to New York on June 13, ahead of the vote on Canada’s bid for a seat on the United Nations Security Council, global affairs Canada announced.

“In New York, minister Champagne and Marc-André Blanchard, Canada’s ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN will engage with various ambassadors and permanent representatives to promote Canada’s commitment to peace and security, climate change, gender equality, economic security and multilateralism. The minister will also be present in New York on the day of the vote, June 17.”

Arnold August article, ‘CARICOM should vote against Canada for a UN Security Council seat explained, “There are three contenders in the upcoming election for a seat on the UN Security Council. Unlike the other two, Norway and Ireland, present-day Canada represents the epitome of modern colonialism. Although the US is the quintessential post-World War II colonial power, Canada is not far behind. Canada is one of the most important foreign affairs allies of the US. Unlike Norway and Ireland, Canada is a G7 country and thus part of the group considered to be the de facto coordinating committee for international affairs. In reality, it is also the group coordinating colonial domination over the world.

“Tiny Islands with Voices of Giants need to look squarely at the issue of the elections for seats on the UN Security Council. Surely, after considering Canada’s role in the region and the world, it is impossible to fathom how it could be in the interests of CARICOM States to vote for a government such as the current one in Canada. “Justin Trudeau’s foreign policy serves as camouflage for Trump’s policies, and the Monroe Doctrine which is still very much on the table today,” August said.


Minister of foreign affairs, François-Philippe Champagne said: “Canada’s bid for a seat on the UN Security Council is rooted in the deep conviction that Canada can help contribute concrete solutions to global challenges faced by the international community. I look forward to being in New York for the final few days before the vote to work alongside and to show support and appreciation for our hard-working diplomats who have done a tremendous job over the past four years. All this work has strengthened our relations with countries around the world and allowed us to make our voice heard on issues that are important to Canadians.”

The minister will follow all applicable health and safety protocols, including public health advice and measures and will quarantine for 14 days upon his return to Canada.
