UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres questioned the lopsided representation at the UN Security Council. He also made a case for Africa to have a permanent seat on the council.
Mr Guterres said that institutions must reflect today’s world, not that of 80 years ago, adding that September’s Summit of the Future will be an opportunity to consider global governance reforms and rebuild trust.
He said this after attending the just concluded Non-Aligned Movement summit in Uganda.
The African Union and its members over the years have questioned the composition of the Security Council while demanding at least one permanent seat for an African country.
