Pakistan slams India’s demand for UNSC expansion as ‘self-serving’


UNITED NATIONS: Pakistan has criticised the demand made by India along with other G4 countries of adding more permanent seats to the UN Security Council, saying it was based on “poor logic” and reflected the “self-serving national ambition” of a few.
Pakistan’s envoy to the UN Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi, at the informal meeting of the General Assembly on Inter- Governmental Negotiations on Security Council reform, said the objective of the Council’s expansion should be to respond to the concerns and “aspirations of all, not just a few.”
