Equitable representation primary force behind UNSC reform efforts: Maleeha
NEW YORK (92 News) – Pakistan’s permanent Ambassador to the United Nations, Dr Maleeha Lodhi on Wednesday on Wednesday called for equitable representation on the United Nations Security Council by adding more non-permanent members.
Addressing the Inter-governmental Negotiations on Security Council Reform at the United Nations on Wednesday, she said that equitable representation has been the primary impulse behind all Security Council reform efforts.
Pakistan’s permanent Ambassador to the United Nations, Dr Maleeha Lodhi said this while.
The ambassador while criticizing the Group of Four position said that they have shown no flexibility in their campaign for expanding the Security Council by 10 seats, with 6 additional permanent and four non-permanent members.
On the other hand, Italy-Pakistan-led Uniting for Consensus group says that additional permanent members will not make the Security Council more effective.
