Only 14 Countries Have Paid 2018 UN Dues

Jan 24, 2018 – South Sudan and Benin have paid their 2018 United Nations dues but the world body’s biggest contributors, the United States, Japan and Germany have still to pony up, according to latest figures from the Committee on Contributions.

Only 14 countries have paid as of January 23, and besides the United States, none of the other permanent members of the UN Security Council have paid up yet.

Member states are being given until Feb. 9 to pay in full but if past years are any indication only some 15 percent of the UN’s 193 member states will have┬ástumped up by then.

The 14 countries that have paid their dues so far are as follows:
