    The Security Council includes fifteen countries, five of which (China, France, Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom) have the status of permanent members. The remaining ten countries are elected by the General Assembly for a term of two years, while each year five non-permanent members are elected.


    The Security Council currently consists of five permanent members (China, France, Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom) and ten non-permanent members (Bolivia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Senegal, Sweden, Ukraine, Uruguay).
