Pakistan has opposed the addition of new permanent members to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), claiming it will compound the Council’s “inequality and dysfunctionality,” according to Radio Pakistan.

Pakistan’s permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Munir Akram, while addressing a meeting of Inter-Governmental Negotiations Frameworkwhile, reiterated “Pakistan’s principled stance on restructuring the Security Council by expansion in the non-permanent category so that the ideal of a comprehensive reform can be met.”

Progress in reform process can be made only through consultations, mutual accommodation and innovative compromise, and not by bullying and coercion, he told the meeting.
