Security Council Reform

2000-10-16 00:00

The objective of the Security Council reform is to enable it to better discharge its responsibility for maintaining international peace and security conferred by the Charter of the United Nations. Priority should be given to address the under-representation of the developing countries. Membership of the Council should not be judged by the benchmark of national wealth. Any formula of reform that discriminates against the developing countries will not work. Measure should also be taken to improve the working method of the Security Council with a view to enhance the efficiency and transparency of the Council's work.

The reform of the Security Council bears on the vital interests of every Members States. In this connection, every single reform proposal should be fully scrutinized by the United Nations Membership. Efforts for expansion of the Council should not be bound by any imposed time.
