Those who enjoy the privileges of permanent membership are manifestly uninterested in UN changes. Jaishankar

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has criticised the slow pace of United Nations changes, stating that those enjoying the benefits of permanent membership are in no rush to see reforms implemented.

India has been at the forefront of efforts at the United Nations to overhaul the Security Council. India has emphasised that it deserves a permanent seat at the United Nations’ top table.

“What does it say about the state of the United Nations when the world’s most populous nation is not among the permanent members of the security council?” Jaishankar asked in an interview with Austria’s public broadcaster ORF on Monday.

When asked how long it will be until the UN Security Council is reformed, he responded, “Those who currently enjoy the benefits of permanent members are not in a hurry to see reform.” The UN’s legitimacy, as well as its own interests and efficacy, are ultimately at stake.”

“Therefore, I believe it will require some time, though hopefully not too much time. There is a growing consensus among United Nations members that they must be altered. It’s not just us,” Jaishankar stated.

Russia, the United Kingdom, China, France, and the United States are the five permanent members with the ability to veto any substantial resolution.

“The whole continents of Africa and Latin America are omitted, while developing nations are grossly underrepresented. This organisation was founded in 1945. “The year is 2023,” he added.

In addition, he stated that we should “raise the widespread belief that this reform is absolutely necessary.” Increasing calls have been made to raise the number of permanent members to represent the global reality of today.

On the second phase of his two-nation tour, Jaishankar has arrived in Austria from Cyprus.

This is India’s first EAM-level visit to Austria in the last 27 years, and it coincides with the 75th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two nations in 2023.

On Sunday, while addressing members of the Indian diaspora in the capital of Austria, Jaishankar asserted that a 77-year-old organisation like the United Nations requires a “refresh,” and that pressing for a significant reform of the top global body is a key component of New Delhi’s foreign policy.
