India to chair 3 key committees of UN Security Council: All you need to know

India on Friday announced that it would be chairing three important committees of the United Nations Security Council during 2021 to 2022.

TS Tirumurti, India's envoy to the UN, said the country had been asked to chair three important subsidiary bodies of the Security Council.

The committees include - Taliban sanctions committee or the 1988 sanctions committee, the counter-terrorism committee and the Libya sanctions committee.

India began its 8th term as a non-permanent member of the UNSC on January 4 with the stated objective of raising its voice against terrorism, speaking for the developing world and bringing solutions to matters of global peace and security.

India won the eighth term in an election last June securing 184 of the 192 votes cast.

It was last on the council in a two-year term ending 2012.
