    Which preposition is correct?

    1) to extend the moratorium with/ in additional two months.

    Prepositions are a challenge, aren't they?

    For the first one:

    ...to extend the moratorium for an additional two months.

    For the second one:

    The proposal will come up for vote in the Security Council.
