SA reaffirms call for UN reforms

Developing nations in Africa and Asia have been calling for reform of the UN, and its entities like the UN Security Council, which has since World War II accorded veto rights on substantive resolutions to five permanent members: the United States, Britain, France, Russia, and China.

For example, of the 54-nations, the African continent has only three non-permanent members without veto power represented in the UNSC.

In an unpreceded briefing with the media and over 80 foreign ambassadors and high commissioners and heads of mission resident in South Africa on Tuesday, President Jacob Zuma underlined the need for the organisation to consider how it can transform and evolve to improve its capacity to respond to modern-day challenges, especially considering Africa’s needs.
