Egypt has taken part in a UN General Assembly (UNGA) session on "Removing Veto Power, Expanding Security Council to Include New Permanent Seats as General Assembly Debates Reform Plans for 15-Member Organ".
At a time when the United Nations is witnessing multilateral tracks for reform to enhance its potentials with the aim of implementing the targets and principles stated in its charter, and in response to new and present international challenges, Egypt fully believes in the need to reach real and comprehensive reform in the UN Security Council as a key part of reforming the entire organization, Egypt's delegate to the United Nations Mohamed Edriss said.
He asserted Egypt's strong adherence to the unified African stance as stated in the Sirte Declaration including assigning at least two full-authority permanent seats and five non-permanent seats for Africa.
The increasing support to the unified African stance is a clear evidence of the increasing awareness of the UNGA members of the need to end the historical injustice toward Africa, he said, referring to its rightful role to act as full partner in decision making at the UNSC.
