G4 emphasizes need for Security Council reform
26 September 2011
The foreign ministers of the G4 (Brazil, Germany, India and Japan) met in New York on 23 September, on the margins of the 66th session of the United Nations General Assembly, to exchange views on Security Council reform.
The G4 Ministers reiterated their common vision of an enlarged Security Council for the 21st century, expanded in both the permanent and non-permanent categories of membership. This expansion should take into consideration the contributions made by countries to the maintenance of international peace and security, as well as the need for increased representation of developing countries in both categories, in order to better reflect today's geopolitical realities.
The Ministers committed themselves to continue working together in order to bring about the urgently needed reform of the Security Council.
