“For the UN, which has existed for three quarters of a century, it is necessary to reform the structure of the Security Council,” the Japanese Prime Minister said.
Abe noted that his country is making great efforts to implement the ideas and goals of the UN. Japan will participate in the 2022 elections and hopes to become a non-permanent member of the Council, he stressed. In the long term, the country expects to become a permanent member of the Security Council.
The Security Council is a permanent structure of the United Nations responsible for the maintenance of international peace and security. It always has five permanent members as well as ten temporary members.
