German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said in during his speech at 77th session General Assembly (GA) of the United Nations (UN) in New York that Germany is ready to become a permanent member of the Security Council ( SB) UN. This was reported by Reuters.
Scholz specified that the Federal Republic of Germany has been in favor of reforms of the UN Security Council and its expansion for many years.
"First of all, to include more countries in the global South. Germany is ready to take on great responsibilities as as a permanent member, and in the beginning — in as a non-permanent member in 2027–2028", — said the chancellor.
He noted that Germany respects the principles of the world organization and stands for cooperation.
BAGNET notes that currently the permanent members of the UN Security Council are five countries: China, Russia, the USA, Britain and France.
In early September, it became known that the American delegation plans at the UN General Assembly to make a proposal to increase the number of members of the Security Council.
US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield noted that the UN Security Council should better reflect existing global realities and include a greater diversity of voices from different parts of the world.
