Russia has affirmed its support for India for a permanent seat in United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

During Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent visit to Russia, a joint statement was issued which said:

“Russia regards India as a deserving and strong candidate that can bring an independent and responsible approach within the UN Security Council and reaffirms its strong support to India’s candidature for a permanent seat in a reformed UNSC.”

Both the countries emphasised on reforming UNSC and making it more representative of contemporary realities.

India was also the strongest voice that called for text-based negotiations to move the UNSC reform process forward.

In September this year, the General Assembly adopted a negotiating text that contained positions of UN member states on Security Council reforms and how the powerful 15-nation body should be expanded in its permanent and non-permanent categories.

It was termed as ‘historic’ and ‘path-breaking’ move by India.

During the recent meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, both the countries also stressed upon the need for exploration and use of outer space for peaceful purposes and clarified that they were against weaponisation of outer space.

Both the sides also called  for negotiations for a legally binding international agreements at the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva.

The statement said:

“Russia and India were united by common interests in preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their falling into the hands of terrorists, as well as in strengthening multilateral export control regimes.”
