UN Security Council outdated, needs new members: Brazil

VIENNA: The UN Security Council is outdated and needs to bring in new blood, Brazil’s foreign minister Celso Amorim said here on Monday, complaining that non-permanent members were not being taken seriously.

“The Security Council no longer reflects the political reality” but rather a reality “that was true 65 years ago,” Amorim told journalists during a visit to Vienna where he met with his Austrian counterpart Michael Spindelegger.

Instead, the Council should look to the G20 group of industrialised and emerging economies, he said, and bring in countries like Brazil, India and South Africa as permanent members alongside the five current veto-wielding powers – the United States, Britain, Russia, China and France.
