Beijing, September 24
China, which has been stonewalling India’s entry into the UN Security Council, on Thursday said there were “enormous divisions” on reforms to expand the premier body of the United Nations and expressed its willingness to work for a “package solution” that can accommodate interests and concerns of all parties.
The G4 grouping comprising India, Japan, Germany and Brazil on Wednesday expressed their concern over lack of any “meaningful” forward movement on long-pending reform of the UN Security Council (UNSC) and demanded “urgency” on the issue.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said: “We believe the reform of the Security Council is an important issue which concerns the long-term development and all the immediate interests of its members.”— PTI
