REPUBLIC OF CHILE
Ministry of Foreign Relations
No 394

The Ministry of Foreign Relations - Directorate of
Multilateral Policy - presents its compliments to the Embassy
of the United States of America and has the honor to inform
that the Government of Chile has decided to present its
candidacy as a non-permanent member of the United Nations
Security Council for the period of 2014-2015, in the
elections that will be held during the 68th session of the
United Nations General Assembly in 2013.

Chile has had an active role in this world forum since 1945,
when it signed together with 50 other founding states the
United Nations Charter giving birth to the organization.

The Government of Chile, aware of the importance and
responsibility involved in being a member of the Security
Council, is fully committed to the maintenance of
international peace and security in our region and beyond as
evidenced by our extensive participation in the United
Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUTSTAH) and in
peacekeeping operations in the Middle East, East Timor,
Cypress, India, Pakistan and Bosnia Herzegovina.

The Ministry of Foreign Relations, taking into consideration
the excellent bonds of friendship and cooperation between
both countries, requests the valuable support of the
Government of the United States of America for the above
mentioned candidacy.

The Ministry of Foreign Relations - Directorate of
Multilateral Policy - avails itself of this opportunity to
renew to the Embassy of the United States of America the
assurances of its highest and most distinguished
consideration.

Santiago, December 6, 2006.
