United Nations: Warning that the Security Council is becoming a victim of “self-inflicted wounds of diminishing relevance”, India has called for united action to reform it. India’s Permanent Representative Syed Akbaruddin on Monday ridiculed attempts to prevent the reform of the Council telling the General Assembly: “We cannot pose as guardians of a status quo that does not exist.”

The Council now “is all about primacy but with little purpose” and is not addressing the new challenges facing the world, he said. “Updating the current architecture of international institutions, which are so out of sync with the modern world, is imperative if new global challenges are to be met,” he said. “Nowhere is this need for the common purpose required more than in reforming the Security Council,” he said. In his critique of the working of the UN, Akbaruddin said that the world body was failing to look at future risk scenarios and taking action to deal with them through “continuous attention rather than one-shot solutions.” (IANS)
