India Calls for Reform of the United Nations (UN) Security Council, Calling Its Current Form ‘Out of Touch with Political Realities’

The comments come near the end of India’s temporary seat on the Security Council which is set to expire at the end of this December. India’s Permanent Representative to the U.N. Hardeep Singh Puri also advocated for some kind of restraint to the members of the Security Council’s right to veto power.

“The Security Council as it is presently structured is not reflective of contemporary realities, it is completely out of tune with what is happening in the world … In order to give the Council effectiveness there is need to enlarge its size. India’s point of view is that the Security Council needs to be more transparent.”
