Security Council expansion

Russia has again supported India’s claim for permanent membership in the Security Council. Russia’s Ambassador to India Denis Alipov has called for immediate reform of the Security Council, saying that India’s presence in this main body of the United Nations will promote balance and will help the world’s large population, especially the countries of the Global South, The interests of India can be placed on the global platform. He also underlined that the presidency of G-20 is a clear testimony of India’s excellent multilateral diplomatic capacity and its ability to build consensus amid rising geopolitical tensions. In view of the changing world order and international circumstances, many countries including India have been demanding the expansion of the Security Council for a long time. But the mutual politics and sense of exclusivity of the five permanent members remains a hindrance in the path of reform. However, all the permanent members have justified India’s claim at one time or the other.

Some time ago, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had slammed the permanent members and said that the Security Council is like an ‘old club’, whose members do not want to include new countries because they feel that it will reduce their control. . The Russia-Ukraine war has been going on for two years. Israel is repeatedly refusing to stop the Gaza attack. West Asia is on the verge of a big war. Today, violent conflicts are going on in about 40 places in the world. In these matters, even after several meetings, the Security Council has failed to take any concrete decision, leave alone any concrete action. During the Corona epidemic, developed countries had hoarded large quantities of vaccines. The Security Council could not do anything in that regard also. In the G-20 summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that in view of the present realities, there is a need for change in the structure of global institutions. Giving the example of the Security Council, he underlined that when the United Nations was established, it had 51 members. Today the number of members of the United Nations is approximately 200. But the number of permanent members remains only five. Although the current permanent members have agreed with the need for expansion, they have shown reluctance to take concrete initiatives. Now the time has come that the reform process should gain momentum considering the present and future of the world.
