Description
The General Assembly today concluded its annual debate on Security Council reform, with several Member States stressing that the unfair and outdated rules and processes from the last century are not relevant in today’s world and paralyse the Council from taking meaningful action.

The Assembly — having kicked off on November 16 its debate on the 15-member body tasked with maintaining international peace and security (Press Release GA/12562) — heard from the remainder of speakers today. Many echoed the view regarding the need to limit veto use, saying legitimate reasons for doing so should include cases of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.
