Biden supports UNSC reforms

In his address to the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, President Joe Biden reiterated his resolve to reform the U.N. Security Council.

Biden stated that he believes it is time for the institution’s inclusion in order to better meet the needs of the world today.

He said that members of the U.N. Security Council, including the United States should uphold and defend United Nations Charter and refrain form using veto except in exceptional and rare circumstances to keep the Council credible and effective.

“This is why the United States supports increasing both the number of permanent and non-permanent members of the Council. This includes permanent seats to countries we have long supported,” Mr. Biden stated.
