India is one Step ahead for Veto power in United Nations Security Council. 193 countries have signed a proposal for reform in the UN. The proposal was cleared despite strong opposition of China, a permanent member in Security Council. Only a handful of countries likes of Pakistan and North Korea supported China. China has dropped its idea of voting seeing a environment against them. Several countries have send written suggestions on this proposal.
India has been pursuing for a permanent seat with veto power in UNSC for a long time. This proposal puts India one step ahead to achieve its goal. India has legitimate reasons to get the seat as a largest democracy in the world and having share of one sixth of the world population. Moreover, India has not invaded or attacked any country and have been part of many UN peace keeping missions.
India is the fastest growing economy in the world and that supports its claim. G-4 countries (India, Brazil, Germany and Japan) have supported Indian claim. Large numbers of countries across all continents are supporting India. All permanent members but China are also in support.
Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India has been lobbying for the same and getting overwhelming responses from the world leaders. Indo-US relationship has reached into new high along-with that of France. We already have very good relationship with Russia and the UK. However, China and Pakistan are opposing Indian claim and campaigning to get support.
The UN will enter into a year long discussions over this proposal and will move it to general assembly. India needs support of 129 member countries to go through. We have faith on our beloved PM and believe that he will manage support of 129 countries. Let us hope for the best.
