Europe News Desk!! Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the blueprint for UN Security Council reform to meet new global realities could be something the G20 reflects. He told a news conference on Tuesday that with a multipolar world emerging, there would be a need to initiate reform of the Security Council. This may mirror the composition of the G20. The G20 is a grouping of developed and emerging economies with 19 countries and the European Union. Lavrov said that of course the low representation of African and Latin American countries in the Security Council has to be overcome.
India, Brazil, Japan and Germany, which together form the G group, which have been at the forefront of campaigning for Council reforms, supporting each other for permanent seats, are members of the G20, which is currently led by India. Is. Russia supported India and Brazil for permanent seats in the Security Council. There are no Latin American or African countries in the ranks of the permanent members of the Security Council, while China is the only Asian country that is a member of the Security Council. Lavrov also said that in developing a governing mechanism for a multipolar world it is wise to base itself on the UN Charter with the understanding that Security Council reform is needed to reflect the realities. Lavrov said that the US and the West are against a multipolar world and want their hegemony to remain. Although he did not know what form it would eventually take, he said French President Emmanuel Macron’s recent visit to China was a sign of the emergence of a multipolar world. A joint statement issued during Macron’s visit to China this month supported the idea of a multipolar world. He suggested developing strategic autonomy for Europe.
