Brazil, Japan say 100 nations support UN reforms

Japan and Brazil are working with Germany and India for all four to get permanent seats on UNSC.



Brasilia: The foreign ministers of Brazil and Japan say more than 100 nations are supporting a proposal to expand the United Nations Security Council.

Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota says a reform proposal making the rounds at the UN shows a desire for change at the world body. It does not detail how the change would take place.

Japan and Brazil are working with Germany and India for all four to get permanent seats on the Security Council, joining the US, China, Russia, Britain and France.

There is widespread agreement at the UN that the council should be reformed. But the 192-member General Assembly has been unable for three decades to agree on how.

Patriota and Japan`s foreign minister met in Brazil on Thursday.
