Libya has been elected to the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for the 2021 to 2023 term, the country’s permanent representative to the UN said.

"Despite events Libya have been going through, there will be an important and active role for Libya at the International community." Taher El-Sunni said.

El-Sunni described ECOSOC membership as the country’s diplomatic success.

Established in 1946, ECOSOC is at the heart of the UN system to advance the three dimensions of sustainable development -- economic, social and environmental.

It is the central platform for coordination, policy review, policy dialogue and recommendations on economic, social and environmental issues.
