EXCLUSIVE: Why India should get permanent membership in UNSC…? Know 5 reasons from NDTV

Although Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made several visits to America during his nine-year tenure, but he has now left for a state visit for the first time, and the state visit given by America only to the leaders of close and allied countries. After getting the honor of the invitation, there is one more issue, for which the voice has started being raised. And that is, India’s permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). The current environment of the world is such that if the United Nations wants to remain a credible organization, it needs to include more permanent members in the UNSC.

India has been at the forefront of efforts to demand immediate reform of the highly divisive Security Council in dealing with the current challenges facing the world. India has asserted that the UNSC in its current form does not reflect today’s geopolitical realities, and that the credibility of the UNSC will be questioned if developing powers like India are not given permanent membership.

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) currently has 5 permanent members, China, France, Russia, UK and USA. Apart from these five permanent members, 10 non-permanent members are elected in UNSC, who remain members for two years. India completed its term as a non-permanent member of the Council in December last year. Significantly, only permanent members have the right to veto (refuse) any proposal, which is effective even without a majority.

Today NDTV is telling you the 5 reasons why India must get this important membership.

  1. India has a new credibility in the world today, due to which if the United Nations wants to maintain its relevance and credibility, it will have to give permanent membership to countries like India.
  2. India represents 17% of the world’s population.
  3. India is currently the fifth largest economy in the world, and has recently overtaken Britain, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, in terms of economy.
  4. Many countries of the world want to see India as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. In fact, among the permanent members of the current United Nations Security Council, except China, all the countries – America, Russia, Britain and France – are in favor of giving permanent membership of UNSC to India.
  5. India’s contribution to the United Nations has been immense. So far, more than 2,00,000 Indian soldiers have participated in UN peacekeeping missions.
