UK supported India
Addressing the UN, Barbara Woodward, the United Kingdom’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, said, “…the UK has long called for an expansion of the UN Security Council. We welcome new seats for India, Germany, Japan and Brazil.” Support permanent membership in the Council, along with the creation of permanent seats, as well as permanent African representation.” This support of UK is considered very important for India, because India’s permanent membership is supported by America as well as France and Russia, so out of five countries with veto power, four countries support India, but China supports India. The biggest stumbling block in the way of At the same time, Pakistan also opposes India’s permanent membership. Even on Thursday, the President of Pakistan had opposed giving permanent membership to India without naming it. At the same time, in the same year, US President Joe Biden also supported India’s permanent membership.
Obama and Trump also got together
At the same time, before this, India should be a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, and the Security Council should have 6 members instead of five, which was supported by the Obama administration as well as the Donald Trump administration. But, there has always been a demand from the US side to include India with conditions, in which it has been said from the US side that it will not support the extension of the veto. Former US governments cited disagreements behind this as opposed by Pakistan, South Korea, Italy and Argentina. Let us tell you that only America, China, France, Britain and Russia have the right of veto power in the United Nations Security Council, and these countries do not want India to be given this right.
India’s role in the United Nations
With the establishment of the United Nations, India has been one of its founding members, but India has been kept away from permanent membership till date and India has always demanded that India should not only be made a permanent member, but India Should also get the right to use veto power. India has been a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for eight times so far and this has happened for the first time, when for the first time in this term of non-permanent membership, India was given the presidency in the month of August last year, while in the month of December this year India will also have the chairmanship. India says that it is the largest democratic country in the world and will soon become the most populous country in the world, so this is the basic reason for India to get permanent membership of UNSC.
