Reform of the UN and Norway’s efforts for peace keeping was discussed when Prime Minister Erna Solberg received Vice-Secretary of the UN, Amina Mohammed.
Norway’s hunt for a vacant seat at the UN Security Council was probably also on the table during the visit to Oslo on Thursday.
“Every country working for peace, which follows rules, engages in mediation and at the same time supports and raises women, makes a good effort to secure a seat in the Security Council,” Mohammed said after visiting the prime minister.
The UN is undergoing major reform efforts. At the same time, the challenges are high with unwilling member states and a political turning towards each nation state.
The UN has the tools needed to support and strengthen collaboration that works. Today it is needed more than ever. Globalization is real and we must deal with this commonly. We are all under pressure, and we must tackle the challenges together,” said the Deputy Secretary General.
