Pakistan Opposes Creation of New Permanent Seats in UNSC


Karachi (November 09, 2017): Pakistan Permanent Representative to United Nations Dr Maleeha Lodhi has voiced its firm opposition to the creation of new permanent seats in any reformed Security Council.

Taking part in the debate, Ambassador Lodhi said that Pakistan opposed creation of new permanent seats in the UNSC.

She said that additional permanent seats were contrary to the universally agreed principles of democracy, accountability and transparency.

Maleeha Lodhi criticized the position taken by a handful of countries demanding a permanent seat in the Security Council.

She called for an expansion in the non-permanent category of membership, based on equitable geographic distribution and a system of fair rotation and said that this solution was both fair and just, and was supported by all member states and groups.
