“That’s why, in his address to the General Assembly, President (Joe) Biden expressed his support for increasing the number of Security Council representatives, both permanent and non-permanent, which is a long-term goal of India,” he said.

“This includes permanent seats for countries we have long supported, and permanent seats for countries in Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean,” the top US diplomat said.

Jaishankar, who arrived in the city from New York, where he attended the UN General Assembly session, said reform of the United Nations is a particularly timely topic.

“We appreciate America’s positive approach to this issue which is reflected in the position expressed by President Biden himself. We look forward to working with the United States to take this further.”

“I also appreciated the strong cooperation we have received from the United States on the question of tackling international terrorism,” he said. In particular, I refer to the list of terrorists known and wanted by the UN sanction process. In many other formats also, our two countries cooperate to keep the world safer and more secure,” Jaishankar said.
