The United States is in favor of adding new permanent members to the UN Security Council. This was announced by US President Joe Biden at the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, September 21.
In addition, the American leader spoke for expanding the membership of non-permanent members of the organization.
“The United States supports an increase in the number of both permanent and non-permanent members of the UN Security Council,” Biden said.
According to the head of the White House, the organization must “become more inclusive” and thus adapt to the requirements of the modern world. TASS.
Before that, it was reported that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said he wanted to see his country among the permanent members of the UN Security Council, and also asked to support the candidacy of Germany.
Germany has low chances become a member of the UN Security Council. This is due, in particular, to the presence of three permanent NATO members in its composition. There are more such countries in the UN Security Council than there are states not participating in the alliance. Such an opinion in an interview with Vechernyaya Moskva was expressed by political scientist Yuri Svetov, commenting on Germany’s desire to join the UN Security Council.
