New Zealand Prime Minister Ardern asks UNSC to remove veto right for permanent members

MOSCOW, September 23 – RIA Novosti. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern urged the UN Security Council from the rostrum of the UN General Assembly on Friday to remove its veto right to its permanent members.

“The veto should be abolished, permanent members should fulfill their responsibilities in the name of peace and security and not look out for national interests,” Ardern said. said.

In the UN system, the Security Council works to keep the peace, made up of five permanent members: Russia, the United States, Great Britain, France and China. They are immutable and inviolable, each of them has the right to “veto”, which allows to block any decision from being taken. In addition, the UN Security Council includes ten more countries elected for only two years from each regional group of states.

Although not always implemented, it is the Security Council’s resolutions that are binding, unlike the General Assembly’s advisory resolutions.
