Rajkot: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said today that India will undoubtedly secure permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), reflecting a global sentiment in favor of India's candidacy.

However, he emphasized that achieving this milestone would necessitate intensified efforts from India.

During an interaction with intellectuals in Rajkot, Gujarat, Jaishankar highlighted the historical context of the UNSC's formation, wherein five nations – China, France, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States – claimed permanent membership. Despite the global community's evolution with approximately 193 independent countries, these five nations have retained control over the council.

Jaishankar underscored the need for this entrenched dynamic to change and stressed India's rightful claim to a permanent seat.

He acknowledged the collective proposal put forth by India, Japan, Germany, and Egypt at the UN, expressing hope that it would advance India's cause. Jaishankar urged for continued pressure, citing recent instances of UN deadlock on critical issues.

Additionally, he addressed the case of Indian baby Ariha Shah, emphasizing India's efforts to ensure her welfare amidst ongoing legal proceedings in Germany.

Reflecting on India's democratic and economic progress, Jaishankar underscored India's potential to contribute significantly to global challenges and affirmed the world's recognition of India's capabilities and achievements.
