China assumed the rotating presidency of the UN Security Council for June.  Li Baodong, the Chinese permanent representative to the United Nations, took over the rotating presidency from Agshin Mehdiyev, the permanent representative of Azerbaijan to the UN.

Under the UN Charter, the Security Council has the primary responsibility for the maintenance of peace and security in the world at large. Li Baodong said that China would fulfill its duty as the rotating president of the Security Council in June in a fair and neutral way, so as to effectively maintain international peace and security.

According to the current provisional work programme for June, the Security Council is expected to review nearly 30 issues, covering major international hot spots such as Syria, Sudan and South Sudan, and the West Asia.
