India has yet again reiterated on the need to reform the UN Security Council.
Syed Akbaruddin, India’s Ambassador to the United Nations, called for a reform and reinvigoration of the UN Security Council.
He said that failing the imminent need for reforms, the world peace is likely to be replaced by a ‘world order in pieces’.
He was participating in a UN Security Council Open Debate.
Akbaruddin said that the Council is facing a manifold crisis of performance, credibility, legitimacy, and relevance.
He also suggested that in the place of only five members having a veto on informal meetings, all 15 members should be bestowed with a veto in the ‘subterranean universe’ of sanctions committees.>
