Russia has backed India’s bid to become a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, a global organization tasked with ensuring international peace and security. During his address to the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov mentioned this.
He said that the security council could be more democratic if it included people from Africa, Asia, and Latin America. He also said that India and Brazil should be considered for permanent seats on the UN Security Council.
“We see the possibility of making the Security Council more democratic by including countries from Africa, Asia, and Latin America. India and Brazil, in particular, are important international actors who should be considered for permanent membership in the UN Security Council, “he was cited as saying by the news agency ANI.

The people who signed the joint declaration said that in order for the United Nations to work in the modern world, the Security Council needs to be reformed quickly and completely.
