India’s bid for permanent seat in UN Security Council hindered
United Nations: India’s target of getting permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council has faced an obstruction after General Assembly pushed further negotiations on the reforms to the next session.
Calling it unfortunate, India along with other G-4 nations including Brazil, Germany and Japan said that no agreement took place over the issue from last 70 years.
“It is unfortunate that the 70th anniversary of the United Nations was not able to build up momentum with a view to reaching an agreement on this important item of the agenda of the General Assembly,” G-4 nations said in a joint statement.
“The longer we postpone a decision on the reform of the Security Council, the greater discredit brought upon the United Nations in its core function of promoting peace and security,” said Brazil’s permanent representative Antonio on behalf of other G-4 nations.
- America, Russia, China, France and Britain are the permanent members of the Security Council.
- Nations including Pakistan, China and Italy are opposing India’s permanent membership.
- The election among 10 non-permanent nations takes place every second year.
