Germany's Merkel Calls for U.N. Security Council Reform

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

It's high time the United Nations Security Council is reformed to reflect the real distribution of power across the world in the 21st century. According to Reuters, that's what German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday during the U.N.'s General Assembly in New York. The Security Council is the most powerful U.N. body, and has 15 members--five of them permanent. Germany, Japan, India and Brazil say the world is very different from what it was in 1945--and the Security Council should reflect that. Merkel told the other leaders, "The current atmosphere is that not only we four--but many others--don't agree with the structure and the working method of the Security Council."
