India's role will increase in the multi-polar world: Foreign Minister of Russia praised the foreign policy, entitled to become a permanent member of the UNSC
Russia has supported making India a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council ie UNSC. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at an international forum held in Moscow on December 7 that India has increased the value of the council by its stand on major issues of the world. In such a situation, he must be a permanent member of the UNSC.
India is presiding over the UNSC Council since 2021. Which is going to end in December this year. The statement of the Foreign Minister of Russia that came earlier has further strengthened India's claim for permanent membership of the UNSC. He said that I think India is one of the leading countries in the world in terms of economic growth. India's population will become the largest in the world after some time. Praising India's foreign policy, Lavrov said that he has diplomatic experience in dealing with many challenges. Along with this, India also has a good hold on Asia. Which strengthens his claim for UNSC even more.
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said that India plays an important role not only in the United Nations but also in regional organizations. India is such a country which is not only limited to wanting to create a multipolar world, but this country will also become an important pillar of that world. He has appreciated India's role in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
In November, France and Britain also offered to make India a permanent member of the UN Security Council. The representative of France in the United Nations (UN) has said that the time has come when India's participation in the world's most powerful organization of emerging powers should increase. France has demanded to make not only India but also Germany, Brazil and Japan permanent members of the Security Council.
During the Prime Minister's US visit in 2021, President Joe Biden advocated India's claim to the permanent seat of the UN Security Council. At that time India's Foreign Secretary Harshvardhan Shringla had told that not only America, but all the Quad member countries have agreed on this.
The issue was raised on Thursday by Indian diplomat Ruchira Kamboj at the UN regarding the changes in the Security Council. In which he talked about equal representation in UNSC. The longer the delay in changes, the more damage will be done to the organization and the world. However, this is not the first time that the demand for such reforms has been raised from the Indian side. India has been supporting these changes in UNSC from time to time.
India has been trying to become a permanent member of the Security Council for a long time, but the biggest obstacle in India's path is China. Apart from China, France, America, Russia and Britain have agreed to make India a permanent member of the Security Council, but China has been opposing India's permanent membership on different pretexts.
Apart from this, demands for change in the structure of the UNSC have also been raised many times. It is argued that the representation of developing countries in the UNSC is less, but the permanent members do not want any change in this and veto power should be given to any other country. Apart from India, Japan, Germany and Brazil are also trying to become permanent members of the Security Council.
