About this Committee
The Asia-Pacific Group (formerly the Asian Group) has 53 members (27% of all UN members) and is the second largest regional group by number of member states (one fewer than the African Group). Its territory is composed of much of the continents of Asia and Oceania. However, Russia is a member of the Eastern European Group and Australia, New Zealand, Israel, and Turkey are all members of the Western European and Others Group. The Asia-Pacific Group has three seats on the Security Council: the permanent seat of China, and two non-permanent seats. The Group also has 11 seats on the United Nations Economic and Social Council
and 13 seats on the United Nations Human Rights Council.
