G4 dissatisfied with lack of progress in UNSC reform
External Affairs Minister of India S. Reform of the UN Security Council is the central theme of Jaishankar’s visit to the US this week. On Thursday, he held meetings with counterparts from Germany, Brazil and Japan under the Group of Four (G4) banner. The primary focus of the G4 is the reform of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and permanent membership of its members.
He reiterated his resolve to push for reforms and expressed dissatisfaction over the lack of progress in this direction. In a tweet after the meeting, Jaishankar said, reiterated the joint resolve to work towards point-based multilateral reform. Our cooperation will continue to achieve this goal. India is currently a non-permanent member of the Council.
His two-year term will end on December 31 this year. In addition to reiterating their support for each other’s efforts to become permanent members of the UNSC, the G4 also supported African countries to have permanent and non-permanent representation.
In a joint statement, the G4 said the decision-making bodies of the United Nations needed urgent reform, as global issues continue to become complex and intertwined. The inability of the UNSC to deal with these problems shows an urgent need for reform.
