Switzerland and the UN: 5 years already 

On 15 June 2007, the Federal Council has submitted to Parliament its 5th annual report, "Switzerland and the UN", on Switzerland's co-operation with the UN and the international organisations based in Switzerland. In this report the Federal Council describes the most important developments that have taken place at the United Nations during the past year. It also gives an over-view of the some of the main concerns and challenges of Switzerland’s host country policy and summarises the conclusions that can be drawn from our experiences with presenting Swiss candidates for top-level posts in the UN and other international organisations. To conclude, the Federal Council assesses Switzerland’s activities within the UN in the past five years since becoming a full member in 2002, and presents our country’s priorities with regard to the next General Assembly in September 2007.
