Spain???s commitment to multilateralism via its contribution to peacekeeping and safeguarding international security is among the strong points highlighted in its bid for a seat on the United Nations Security Council.
Ambassador Manuel Cacho Quesada, the Special Envoy for Spanish Candidatures of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation in Spain, paid a courtesy call on Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Maxine McClean, to lobby Barbados??? support for the non-permanent seat on the Council for the period 2015-2016.
During the meeting at the Ministry yesterday, he said his country hoped to ???represent the interests of other countries in the United Nations Assembly if we have the honour to be elected to the Security Council???.
The two officials discussed a range of issues and the benefits to be derived from an enhanced bilateral relationship should Spain receive the nod to sit on the Council.
Barbados and Spain established diplomatic ties on September 29, 1980.
