Swaraj calls for early start of negotiations for UNSC reforms
India today called for an early start to text-based negotiations for UN Security Council reforms minister Sushma Swaraj expressing hope that a revamp of its top organ will be a "priority" for the world body.

In 2015, the UN General Assembly had adopted a negotiating text by consensus for long-pending UN Security Council reforms, setting the stage for talks on the issue. "Efforts at text-based negotiations on the reform and expansion of the Security Council were initiated in the last
session and more than 160 nations had expressed support for this effort. If we are serious, then the least we can do is produce one text that can be the basis for negotiation," Ms Swaraj said.
