india-supports-un-resolution-against-sri-lankaOn the eve of completion of 70 years of UNO foundation, the General Assembly circulated a new text – expansion of Security Council among other reforms with a committee under Courtenay Rattray as chairman to coordinate with member-States to discuss the issue threadbare. India among 13 countries had been competing for a berth in the Council which has veto powers as now only Russia, USA and China have that power as permanent members of the Council. The new text will come for debate in the General Assembly from today. The Assembly has already discussed equal representation of all members, Council expansion among others and made clear that member-nations must arrive at a decision on individual opinions and that no voting would be held in this regard.
