NEW YORK - In a diplomatic triumph, India was Tuesday elected to a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council after a gap of nearly two decades.
With Kazakhstan withdrawing from the race in January, India became the sole candidate from the Asian region and its election to the non-permanent seat had become a near certainty.
India last held a non-permanent seat in the UN Security Council in 1992.
