Council, including in the permanent membership category, and
sought patient negotiations among governments to narrow down
differences on the issue.

UNSC," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei told a media
His remarks came in response to a question on China`s
stand on time-bound reforms being advocated by India and other
countries for permanent membership of the UN Security Council.
