Pakistan says expansion in UNSC’s non-permanent seat only way to ensure regional representation.

Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi told a U.N. panel, that the Council needs to be expanded in a manner that gives a greater chance of representation to the regional groups.

In her remarks, Ambassador pointed out that the countries in the permanent category were “nominated” in the UN Charter.

She said they do not represent any region, and no endorsement was required from regional groups for their continued presence in the permanent category nor, for that matter, a vote in the General Assembly.-Radio Pakistan
