Arab states urge Saudis to keep Security Council seat

Reuters, UNITED NATIONS

Earlier in the week, the US praised Iran’s approach to negotiations with six world powers on its nuclear program during two-day talks in Geneva. Last month, Obama spoke on the telephone with Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, the first contact between US and Iranian heads of government since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

If the Saudis insist on giving up their seat, the Asia Group will likely find another Arab candidate from the Middle East to take it.
