Iran becomes president of Executive Council of UN Human Settlements Program

Tehran (ISNA) - The Islamic Republic of Iran has become the president of Executive Council of the United Nations Human Settlements Program for one year.

Despite US efforts to pressure the UN not to select the Islamic Republic as the Chairman of the Executive Council of Human Settlements Program, Iran pursued diplomatic talks in this regard which led to the support of other countries and the condemnation of the US unilateral action. The US had also threatened to cut its financial aids and cooperation with the international organization if Iran would be selected.

Ultimately, the US retreated from its positions and the Islamic Republic was selected as the chairman of the Council from 2020 to 2021.

Human Settlements Program is one of the executive divisions of the UN which works on issues related to the challenges of human settlement as well as sustainable urban development.
