 The UN Security Council wants to abolish veto power? Russia resolutely opposes.


Overseas network, May 2, the UN General Assembly held a meeting on the reform of the Security Council on Tuesday (1). The Russian Deputy Representative, Saif Linkov (VladimirSafronkov), said at the meeting that the veto power of the permanent members of the Security Council, Russia, China, the United States, Britain and France is the cornerstone of the United Nations system, and the abolition of the veto will make joint efforts to unite the United Nations. The country loses its stability. According to TASS, Saif Linkov said, the unwarranted adventures launched against the veto have triggered a high degree of controversy among the United Nations. This is not only inconsistent with the reform related discussions, but also a disrespect for the veto mechanism, which is the key element in the inspection and balance of the United Nations system and the key element of the collective decision-making. He said, this element urges the members of the Security Council to work hard to reach a compromise. The veto is not a privilege of the members of the Security Council, but a great responsibility. The veto is the cornerstone of the United Nations system, and the abolition of the veto will make the United Nations lack stability. He added, in other words, from a political point of view, it is very short-sighted to infringe on this right, and it will be difficult to achieve a balance of interests in abolishing it. It is reported that he reiterated Russias position that developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America should get more seats in the UN Security Council. With the veto power of permanent members, this measure will form a necessary condition for the balance of Security Council resolutions. The report said that the discussions between the States on the reform of the United Nations Security Council have begun in 1992, but no consensus has been reached on the composition of the Council, the number of permanent and non permanent members, or the implementation of the veto. The last change in the Security Council was in 1965, when the number of its non permanent members expanded from 6 to 10. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said in October last year that he thought the UN Security Council reform could not reach a consensus in the next one or two years. The current round of negotiations began in February this year. The meetings held in April 30th and May 1st mainly discussed the members of the Council, the power of the veto and the representative of the region, and so on. Saif Linkov, deputy representative of Russia to the United Nations, said that the members involved in the discussion should focus only on the most widely supported proposals.
