SA targets reform of Security Council Trade and Diplomatic Correspondent SA BEGINS a second term as a nonpermanent member of the United Nations (UN) Security Council this month, shrugging off criticism of its voting record during a previous stint and vowing to lobby China and Russia for a permanent seat on the council.
The council is the UN's most powerful body, with executive powers to determine sanctions and military intervention against any country. International Relations and Co-operation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said in Pretoria yesterday reform of the council would be one of SA's main priorities in its two-year term.
