The theme of the UK Presidency of the UN Security Council has been conflict prevention in Africa, with focus on the Lake Chad Basin, South Sudan, and Somalia. The UK has also held an open debate on modern slavery, to place the issue firmly on the Council’s agenda. Throughout our Presidency, we have been action-oriented, transparent and consultative.
