“The debate will be the first opportunity for Poland to take the floor in the Security Council at the level of the head of state” after the country became a non-permanent council member on January 1, said a statement posted on the Polish president’s official website.
Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said earlier this week that strengthening international law was Poland’s priority as it starts its two-year stint as a council member.
He added that a spot on the council was Poland’s ticket to participation in world politics.
Poland will sit on the council with its five permanent members -- China, France, Russia, the UK and the United States-- as well as Bolivia, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Peru and Sweden.
