World Leaders Call for an End of UN Security Council Veto Power

Wednesday, October 1, 2014 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

NEW YORK (Worthy News)-- World leaders demanded Security Council reform during their addresses to the UN General Assembly over the past few days, calling for the addition of more permanent and non-permanent seats on the council and the elimination of the veto, the Jerusalem Post reported.

"The world is bigger than five," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in his speech during the General Debate, referencing the five countries with veto power – the US, Britain, France, China, and Russia.

Heads of state from across the globe echoed his call for immediate reform.

The status quo has made the governing body inefficient, Peru's President Ollanta Humala Tasso said. He asked for the addition of more permanent and non-permanent members, which, he said, should result in a more democratic process. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/International/World-leaders-call-for-end-of-United-Nations-veto-power-376443" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
