This is the third time SA is serving on the Security Council since 1994, reports EWN's Ahmed Kajee.

South Africa has officially assumed its seat as a non-permanent member of the United Nations (UN) Security Council.

More than 180 countries voted for SA at the UN General Assembly in June last year, unopposed by any other African country.

This is the third time SA is serving on the Security Council since 1994. reports EWN's Ahmed Kajee.

He says the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) plans to use its position to promote international peace and security on the continent.

The department says it wants to ensure that Africa's position is pushed forward more.
