Russia backs India`s bid for permanent UNSC seat

Russia backed India`s bid for a permanent seat in an expanded UNSC as well as its aspirations to join the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.



Moscow: Russia on Friday backed India`s bid for
a permanent seat in an expanded UN Security Council as well as
its aspirations to join the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation
(SCO), a regional security grouping.

Moscow, one of the five veto-wielding members of the UNSC
and one of the founders of the SCO, expressed it support in a
joint declaration issued after the 12th annual India-Russian
Summit between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President
Dmitry Medvedev in the Kremlin.

In their joint statement, both Medvedev and Singh
underscored that the UNSC reform should be carried out in way
to make it "more representative and effective" in countering
the existing and new challenges.

In this context, Moscow is for giving New Delhi a
permanent seat in an expanded UNSC, the Kremlin said.
