Permanent Observer at the United Nations
The g7+ Secretariat then worked closely with the permanent missions of Sierra Leone, Timor-Leste and all other member states in New York during the month of October 2019 to galvanize support for the resolution.
Observer Status enables the group to have an avenue through which it can provide collective input into the agenda and work of the UN, particularly on relevant subjects such as sustaining peace and security, improving peacekeeping operations, conflict prevention, Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, and general effective engagement. The group will also benefit from close collaboration with the UN and its organs in its mission to achieve lasting peace and stability.
On 18 December 2019, the UN General Assembly adopted the resolution granting g7+ Observer Status. This is a historical milestone in the journey of the g7+.
