UNITED NATIONS: Pakistan’s representative to UN Dr Maleeha Lodhi says increase in Security Council’s permanent members will worsen its inherent dysfunctionalities.     

Speaking in a debate on Security Council reform at the United Nations, she said the addition of permanent members will undermine the democratic and representative nature of the reform process.

Dr Maleeha Lodhi said Pakistan fully supports reform process and calls for increasing strength of non-permanent members.
