Japan was among five countries elected Thursday for a non-permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council for 2023-2024.

Switzerland, Mozambique, Malta and Ecuador will also take up two-year posts from January 1 next year.

The five will replace India, Norway, Kenya, Mexico and Ireland.

The council consists of 15 members, five of which are permanent: the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom.

The other ten posts are filled by other countries for two-year residencies, five of which are advertised each year.

Japan, Switzerland, Mozambique, Malta and Ecuador were elected by secret ballot by the UN General Assembly.

Of the 193 members of the assembly, Japan received 184 votes.

Deputy Foreign Minister Odawara Kiyoshi said Tokyo’s priorities are “security, including energy and food.”

Mozambique was elected to the council for the first time in its history with 192 votes.

Switzerland won 187, Malta 185 and Ecuador 190.
