Ambassador Raghavan stressed that with two BRICS founders – Russia and China – as permanent Security Council members, the initiative to overhaul the Council had a chance of hitting home.
"If two permanent members of the UN SC along with some of the biggest developing countries of the world join together and make a real joint effort to reform global institution of governance, they will have a very strong impact," he told Sputnik.
"The move to reform and democratize these institutions is one that has been going on for a long time. India has been very strongly for this," the diplomat added.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon has admitted that the 15-member Security Council needed to be reformed. His under-secretary, Jeffrey Feltman, said Thursday that the UN head would support the drive coming from UN SC member states.
