Though the move was opposed by China, Pakistan, and Russia; India has welcomed the move as it marked a significant step that has taken India one step closer to becoming a permanent member of the UN Security Council.

Welcoming the decision, India has released a statement saying: “We look forward to the early commencement of text-based negotiations with a view to securing concrete outcomes during the 70th session of the UNGA. We call upon all member states to constructively engage in this process so that the long-pending reform of the UN Security Council can be achieved.”

Further, Asoke Mukerji, the India’s ambassador to the UN, described this development as “historic and path-breaking.” He added that it is “the first time in the history of the intergovernmental negotiation (IGN) process that a decision on UNSC reform has been adopted through an official document.”

China, Pakistan, and Russia dismissed the move as being unfair and non-transparent, but were unable to prevent the adoption of the text.
