To allThe new temporary members of the UN Security Council begin their 2 year term on 1 January 2000, their membership expiring 31 December 2001.They areBangladeshJamaicaMaliTunisiaUkraineThe other 5 temporary members finish their 2 year term 31 December 2000They areCanadaMalaysiaNamibiaNetherlandsArgentinaThe P5 (permanent members) are China, France, Russia, UK and US.It is likely that the US and UK will "get to work " on the new members straight away, if they have not already.Do other list members feel there is any benefit in approaching the temporary members, particularly the new ones, through letters or embassy visits?Certainly, if nothing else, it may be significant to note their positions on sanctions when they enter the Council and 6 months later.PeaceRichard Byrne
