Brazil leads United Nations Security Council for a month

In the near Tuesday (1º), Brazil assumes the presidency of the United Nations Security Council, and will be commanding it during February, reports Renata Giraldi, from Agência Brazil. The position is rotating and always occupied by one of the 15 members of the organ.

For years, Brazil is struggling to occupy a permanent seat in the council and defending its reform. Upon assuming the command, the objective is going to extend the debates for the trouble spots in the poorest regions of the world.

Next 11 of February, Brazil promotes a debate about peace, security and development. The minister of the foreign affairs, Antonio Patriota should participate of the arguments.

In the UN, Brazil is represented by the ambassador Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti. According to diplomats that accompany the arguments in the United Nations, the moment is for observing with attention what occurs in the Kosovo, in the The Congo and in Guinea Bissau, beyond the effects of the plebiscite in the Sudan.

It is the UN Security Council that authorizes the military intervention in one of the 192 countries-members of the organization and also that establishes sanctions – as occurred to the Iran, in June. The conflicts and political crises are analyzed by the council, that defined about the sending and the permanence of soldiers of the missions of peace.
