When will India become a permanent member of the UNSC?
Let us find out why India should be a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.
The United Nations Security Council is an organ of the UN that works to maintain international peace and security. It was established by the UN Charter in the year of 1945, after World War II. India was one of the 51 founding members of the UN Security Council. The UNSC has five permanent members: America, France, Russia, China, and the U.K. These permanent members have veto power by which they can remove any bill from the council. Along with these permanent members, it also has ten elected members, who are elected for a period of two years as temporary members. India has had a seat in these temporary member’s clubs for the past eight times and will continue to do so in the future. The main aim of the UNSC is to neutralize terrorism and violence in the world, to maintain a peaceful environment, to perform actions for public health, and raise concern for climate conditions.
