Saint Vincent and the Grenadines – President of the United Nations Security Council (November 2020)

Dr Ralph Gonsalves Prime Minister of St Vincent and the Grenadines

(Searchlight) Saint Vincent and the Grenadines held its first and only presidency during our tenure on the Security Council during the month of November. Most of the Council’s activities were still conducted remotely in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, however the Council was able to meet in person on three occasions. Our delegation continued to work closely in the “A3+1” configuration with our African brothers and sisters (Niger, South Africa and Tunisia) on many country-specific and thematic issues.

Virtual briefings to the wider United Nations membership, the press and civil society: Our presidency commenced with a virtual briefing to the press by Prime Minister, Dr. The Hon. Ralph Gonsalves on 2 November. The briefing focused on Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’ programme of work for the month of November and was followed by a short question and answer segment. On that same day Ambassador H.E. I. Rhonda King briefed the wider UN membership and engaged in a civil society dialogue on our programme of work.
