Polish president's rep to visit UN headquarters in NY on Friday
Krzysztof Szczerski, head of the Polish President's Office, will pay a visit to New York on Friday in connection with the upcoming conclusion of Poland's two-year non-permanent membership of the UN Security Council.
While in New York, Minister Szczerski will hold meetings with high ranking officials of the UN secretariat to sum up Poland's two-year term, representatives of Poland's Permanent Mission to the United Nations have informed PAP.
The December presidency of the Security Council is being held by the United States. This month's agenda includes, among other issues, negotiations regarding a UN resolution on women, peace and security, and a debate on the role of philanthropy in post-conflict situations held under the broader agenda item "Maintenance of International Peace and Security."
