Russia, China back India, Brazil, S Africa for permanent seats on UN Security Council

 

Russia and China, permanent members of the UN Security Council (UNSC), today backed the claim of India, Brazil and South Africa to permanent seats on a reformed and expanded UNSC.
 
The Delhi Declaration, released here at the end of fourth summit of BRICS, the five-member grouping of the world’s fast growing economies comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, said: "We express our strong commitment to multilateral diplomacy with the United Nations playing a central role in dealing with global challenges and threats. In this regard, we reaffirm the need for a comprehensive reform of the UN, including its Security Council, with a view to making it more effective, efficient and representative so that it can deal with today’s global challenges more successfully."
 
"China and Russia reiterate the importance they attach to the status of Brazil, India and South Africa in international affairs and support their aspiration to play a greater role in the UN."
 
Analysts here interpret this formulation as Russia’s and China’s tacit support to India, Brazil and South Africa, which are demanding that the UNSC be reformed and expanded to represent present day global realities, and that they be made permanent members of the top UN decision-making body.
 
The declaration added: "We recall our close coordination in the Security Council during the year 2011, and underscore our commitment to work together in the UN to continue our cooperation and strengthen multilateral approaches on issues pertaining to global peace and security in the years to come."
