UN adopts text-based negotiations on Security Council reforms

India TV News Desk [ Updated: September 15, 2015 10:14 IST ]

United Nations: The UN General Assembly today adopted a negotiating text by consensus for the long-pending Security Council reforms, setting the stage for talks on the issue at its 70th session beginning tomorrow, boosting India's bid for a permanent seat in the revamped world body.  

India termed as “historic” and “path-breaking” the adoption of the document, saying the decision puts the Inter-Governmental Process formally on an “irreversible text-based negotiations path” and changes the “dynamics” of the negotiations on achieving UNSC reforms.  
UN General Assembly President Sam Kutesa convened a plenary meeting here to take action on the draft decision on the “Question of equitable representation on and increase in the membership of the Security Council and related matters”.
