Canada highlights Syrian refugees in bid for UN Council seat

Syrian refugees fleeing the embattled city of Aleppo walk through a camp on February 6, 2016 in Bab al-Salama, northern Syria, near the Turkish border crossingCanada’s UN ambassador said Sunday that the country’s experience welcoming Syrian refugees helps qualify it for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council, part of its push for a more active role on the world stage. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced in mid-March that Canada would seek a rotating seat on the council during the 2021-2022 term. “Our experience with Syrian refugees, our experience living together in diversity with lasting peace and prosperity is an example for the world,” the country’s UN ambassador Marc-Andre Blanchard told public broadcaster CBC on Sunday.
