In addition, President Macky Sall is actively engaged in ensuring the stability of the West-African sub-region (in Mali, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau and elsewhere).
In 2015, Senegal was elected as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for a two-year term. On the international stage, Senegal is a UN Member State and was elected to the Presidency of the United Nations Human Rights Council with 188 of 193 available votes, making Senegal a major player in the international community.
