United Nations General Assembly (United Nations General Assembly) has unanimously passed a resolution that would require the 193-member body to meet if vetoed by a permanent member of the Security Council. India (India) on Tuesday expressed regret over this and said that there was a lack of inclusivity in moving the resolution. It said it has serious concerns about such a ‘take it or leave it’ initiative that does not take into account the concerns of a wider membership. The United Nations General Assembly has elected any permanent member – America (America), Russia, China, Britain and France adopted the resolution ‘Permanent Mandate for General Assembly Debate on the Casting of a Veto in the Security Council’ without voting unanimously.
The resolution, introduced by Liechtenstein with more than 70 co-sponsors, including the US, stipulates that the President of the General Assembly shall convene a formal meeting of the General Assembly within 10 working days of a vetoed by one or more permanent members of the Security Council. Explaining the vote, India’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations R Ravindra said New Delhi regretted the “lack of inclusivity” in the way the resolution was moved. “We have serious concerns about this kind of ‘take it or leave it’ initiative, which doesn’t make a real effort to take into account the perspectives and concerns of the wider membership,” he said.
Earlier this month, the US said it was co-sponsoring the UN General Assembly resolution, citing an “shameful pattern of abusing its veto privilege” by Russia over the years, that the five permanent members on the Security Council Will automatically call a meeting of the General Assembly after the veto is cast by one of them.
In February, just a day after Russia launched an attack on Ukraine, a US-sponsored UN Security Council resolution failed to pass after Russia used a veto. In this, Russia was condemned for the attack on Ukraine. Underlining India’s areas of “concern” over the so-called veto initiative, Ravindra said such an important resolution with deep long-term implications for the relationship between the two major organs of the United Nations could lead to more serious, in-depth and inclusive deliberations. demands.
“By bringing the veto to the UN General Assembly as the only issue on which the remaining membership has no real right and saying that this issue needs to be resolved first, above all other important issues of Security Council reform.” , one issue is being given more importance. So this flawed approach is an aberration.’ He said that the privilege of using the veto has been given to only five member countries. India is currently in the United Nations Security Council as a non-permanent member for a two-year term. Its term will end on December this year.
