Jaishankar confident on Indias bid of permanent seat in UNSC

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Tuesday said India will definitely get permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council as there is a feeling in the world that it should get the position, but the country will have to work harder this time for it. He was speaking during an interaction with intellectuals in Gujarat's Rajkot city and was asked by the audience on India's chances of becoming the permanent member of the world body.The UN was formed around 80 years ago...at that time, there were five nations which decided that they will become the permanent members of the UN security Council.
Jaishankar underlined that it is a weird thing to know that the same five nations who have kept their control are being asked whether or not the change should take place in the security council. He said, "At that time there were 50 independent countries. In the last 80 years, the number of those countries have now reached 193-194. But, what these five nations have done is kept their control...and the weird thing is that you are asking those 5 nations only that you decide and agree upon whether this change should be carried. Some of them agree to it and some don't. Some put their positions clearly, some do other things in the back-channel...this has been happening for years.
"These days, a lot of negotiations are going on....multiple ideas have been put forward...some by Arab countries, African countries. We along with Japan, Germany and Brazil have also put forward a proposal. I think we should be persistent with this..." the EAM said.As he further went on to speak, Jaishankar noted that the UN has got very weak."So, I think as the pressure of this sentiment will rise, our possibility of getting a permanent seat at the UNSC will also rise," he added.India has been a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for eight terms (16 years). India is a member of the G4, a group of nations that back each other to seek permanent membership in the UNSC. The countries advocate for reform in the UNSC.
