India’s bid for permanent membership to the UNSC, explained

India’s bid for permanent membership of the United Nation Security Council (UNSC) received a major boost on Monday, when the UN general assembly (UNGA) agreed to adopt a negotiating text for Security Council reforms.

In a statement, India’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Asoke Mukerji, said, “This is the first time in the history of the Inter-Governmental Negotiation (IGN) process that a decision on UNSC reform has been adopted through an official formal  Document of the UNGA”.

He added, “This decision sets the IGN process formally on an irreversible textbased negotiations path…The twin objectives of saving our work done in the 69th UNGA and carrying it meaningfully forward have therefore been achieved.”
