Japan to chair U.N. Peacebuilding Commission | The Japan Times Online

The U.N. Peacebuilding Commission has picked Japan as the chair to lead the 31-member panel during its second one-year session that started last week.

'"Japan is very, very honored to have been elected to the chair of the Peacebuilding Commission in its second year and, of course, it is not always easy to get a new mechanism off the ground and get it working in the U.N. system," Kenzo Oshima, head of the panel, said after taking up his new post.'
