Modi pitches for Security Council reforms, stresses on 2015 deadline

UN ModiIndia’s Prime Minster Narendra Modi has made a strong case for expansion and democratisation of the United Nations Security Council, saying the 70 th anniversary of the world body in 2015 will be a huge opportunity to make the UN more relevant in tune with changing times.

Modi said that no one country or a group of select countries should have a monopoly over important decisions that concern the entire world. International participation was imperative in a world that is rapidly changing and which has transformed tremendously since the 20th century.

Adding that the 70th anniversary of the UN, in 2015, provides an opportunity to look back on how far we have come, what we have gained, and what ideas we have given up as a world community.  It is also a perfect time to fulfill our promises of development and securing international cooperation and peace.

Modi added that new realities necessitates that organisation that reflect 20th century realities must make way for an organisation that can address the challenges of the 21st century or risk the danger of being irrelevant.
