Chinese Foreign Minister meets with co-chairs of intergovernmental negotiations on UN Security Council reform

China’s State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met via video link on Wednesday with Joanna Wronecka and Alya Ahmed Saif Al-Thani, co-chairs of the intergovernmental negotiations (IGN) on the reform of the United Nations Security Council of the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Wang commended Ms. Wronecka and Ms. Al-Thani for their role as IGN co-chairs and said China will fully support their work.

According to him, the reform of the Security Council concerns the future development of the UN and the vital interests of its member states. Reform must reflect fairness and justice, increase the representation and voice of developing countries, empower more small and medium-sized countries to participate in the decision-making process of the Security Council, and correct historical injustices against Africa.

Reform must follow the rule of law and maintain the IGN, the only legitimate platform authorized by the UN General Assembly for member states to discuss Security Council reform, Wang said.

Reform must reflect the leadership of UN member states, adhere to broad democratic consultations, and gradually build consensus, in order to find a comprehensive solution acceptable to all parties, Wang said.

He also stressed that the reform should be carried out in a stable and orderly manner, and effectively preserve the unity of member states as well as the prestige of the UN.

Ms. Wronecka and Ms. Al-Thani, who are the Permanent Representatives of Poland and Qatar to the United Nations respectively, said they appreciate China’s efforts to safeguard multilateralism and strengthen the role of the United Nations.

After presenting the IGN’s first round of negotiations, they expressed their willingness to continue to listen widely to the opinions of member states, to maintain close communication with member states, including China, and to strive to the consensus to promote reform in a way that best suits the interests of the majority of UN member states.
