Washington, 5 October: Chilean President Sebastian Pinera has supported India, Brazil, Germany and Japan’s bid for a permanent seat in UNSC.
“I think that countries like Brazil, Germany, Japan, India should be part of the Security Council as permanent members,” Mr Pinera told the popular Charlie Rose Show in an interview on the PBS.
The current five permanent members of the UN Security Council ~ the USA, Britain, France, China and Russia ~ have veto and the inclusion of India, Brazil, Germany and Japan would increase the number to nine, he said.
“Without veto power, of course, because I think that we should try to get rid of the veto power and establish maybe some quorum or super-majority to take the biggest decisions,” Mr Pinera said in response to a question.
