G4 countries call for decisive push for UN Security Council reforms

@DrSJaishankar
Foreign Ministers of the G4 countries - India, Brazil, Japan, and Germany have highlighted the urgency of reforming the United Nations and updating its main decision-making bodies, in order to better reflect contemporary realities.

They expressed disappointment at attempts to derail this process and committed to addressing the issue in a meaningful way and with increased urgency at this 75th anniversary of the UN.
 
External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar, and his counterparts from Brazil, Japan and Germany met virtually during the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly yesterday.

In a Joint Press Statement, the G4 Ministers said, only reforms in UN Security Council can save it from becoming obsolete.
