New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs has made it clear that urgent reforms are needed in the United Nations (UN). Several top world leaders emphasised that the Security Council should take the initiative and perspectives of the developing world, which accounts for the vast majority of UN global membership. India is a non-permanent member of the UNSC council.
India, along with 32 nations, has vowed that time has come for the UN to push reforms in the UN Security Council.
The joint statement stated that “We recognise that in the current situation, the entire world needs reformed and well-planned multilateralism to deliver how to overcome the challenges which are going on, such as developmental challenges, poverty, climate change, pandemics, global food security, international conflicts and crises, and international terrorism.”
The statement further added “We reaffirm that adapting the United Nations to contemporary world realities necessarily requires urgent and comprehensive reform of the Security Council, the principal organ for international peace and security.”
The heads of delegations said that the reform policy of the Security Council is slow, which has created a problem for global peace and security and delivering on the purposes, principles, and promises of the United Nations Charter.
“We commit to “instilling new life” in our efforts during the 77th session of the General Assembly, and urgently call on all Member States of the United Nations to join hands to achieve comprehensive reform of the Security Council,” the statement said.
