President Barack Obama's new approach to the United Nations can be seen in his leadership position over the 15-member Security Council for its next meeting scheduled for Sept. 24.
It will be the first time a U.S. president has led such a meeting.
The special Security Council meeting will focus on nuclear proliferation and disarmament.
Obama will address the U.N. General Assembly on the first day of its annual debate on Sept. 23.
CBN News spoke with American Center for Law and Justice's Jay Sekulow, about Obama's U.N.
"It's very different from what President Bush did and a number of other Presidents too that took a more cautious approach with the U.N.," Sekulow said. "President Obama is embracing the U.N. in full force and he's becoming not only an embracer of principle, but a leader within the U.N. and chairing the Security Council is a big part of that."
