Palestinian bid for statehood faces rocky road as new UN Security council members announced
Advertisements [?]
Azerbaijan joins Morocco, Pakistan, Guatemala, and Togo as non-permanent members, in what is shaping to be a more U.S.-friendly UNSC.
By Shlomo Shamir

After 16 rounds voting, going back to last weekend, Azerbaijan was voted in as the fifth non-permanent Security Council member on Tuesday, ahead of key UN discussions of a Palestinian bid for statehood.

Azerbaijan's gambit was all but assured after Slovenia announced it had withdrawn its bid for non-permanent UNSC member.

The central-Asia nation joins the four other non-permanent members due to take their seat come January 2012, Morocco, Pakistan, Guatemala, and Togo.

Elections for new UNSC members drew much attention this time around, over an expected vote in the Security Council over whether or not to accept the Palestinian bid for full UN membership.
