Biden says he supports India as permanent member of reformed UNSC
He was responding to a question on how long it will take for India to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council
US President Joe Biden said he supports Germany, Japan and India as permanent members of a reformed United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
Earlier on Wednesday, Biden in his address at the UNGA reiterated his commitment to reforming the UNSC.
Biden said he believes the time has come for the institution to become more inclusive so that it can better respond to the needs of today's world.
India not sitting as a permanent member of the UN Security Council is "not good for us" only but also not good for the global body and its transformation is "overdue", External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said on Wednesday. "I was serious when I said I'm working on it," Jaishankar said.
He was responding to a question on how long it will take for India to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
Jaishankar was in a conversation with Columbia University Professor and Former Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog Arvind Panagariya at the Raj Centre at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs.
