G-4 drops veto demand for UNSC seat

United Nations, June 9
Faced with opposition from several UN members, India and other G-4 countries have dropped their demand for veto power in an expanded Security Council for 15 years if they are accepted as permanent members of the world body.

In a new compromise draft circulated yesterday, India, Japan, Brazil and Germany, campaigning vigorously to become permanent members of the council, proposed increasing its strength from 15 to 25 members with six new permanent seats, thus hoping to join the elite group. Two seats may go to African nations. PTI
