India's bid for permanent Security Council seat gets a boost as UN adopts negotiations on reforms

New Delhi, Sept 15 (ANI): India is hopeful of a permanent candidature to the Security Council after the UN General Assembly (UNGA) unanimously adopted a negotiating document for reforms, ahead of its 70th regular session beginning on Tuesday. As per reports, nearly 200 member countries of the UN have agreed to negotiate the wording of a document that will start the process to reform the UNSC, over the next year.

The UNSC has 15 member nations, of which five including the US, Russia and China are permanent. Swarup said the latest development meant that India could begin text-based negotiations with the UN and the path for permanent membership had become a little easier.

India wants to be a permanent member of the UNSC and it has been a leading contributor to the UN peacekeeping missions across the world.
