US President Joe Biden extends support to Japan's bid for permanent UNSC seat


US President Joe Biden has expressed support for Japan’s permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). The US president said on Monday that he supports Japan’s candidacy as a permanent member of the UN Security Council (UNSC).

This information was given by NHK Public Television. Demand has also been raised for reforms in the UNSC.

The UNSC currently consists of five permanent members and 10 non-permanent member states. The non-permanent members are elected by the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) for a two-year term. The five permanent members of the UNSC are Russia, Britain, China, France and the US and these countries can ‘veto’ any original proposal.

India became a non-permanent member of the UNSC in January 2021 for a two-year term. Let us inform that India has been pushing for a permanent seat in the UNSC for more than a decade, but China has been the biggest obstacle. However, India’s hopes have been raised with the support of the Nordic countries. 

The issue of UNSC also arose in the discussion between Norway’s Foreign Minister Aniken Huitfeld and Foreign Minister Subramaniam Jaishankar when she reached Delhi for Raisina Dialogue.
