India not getting a permanent UNSC seat 'not good' for the global body: Jaishankar

WHAT?

EAM S Jaishankar on Wednesday said that India not sitting as a permanent member of the UNSC is "not good for us” & for the global body. 

WHERE?

Jaishankar was in a conversation with Columbia University Professor and Former Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog Arvind Panagariya at the Raj Centre at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.

WHO?

He was responding to a question on how long it will take for India to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council.

We believe that transformation is overdue because the UN is a product that was devised eighty years ago. And 80 years ago by any standards of human creativity is a long time ago. The number of independent countries has quadrupled in that period, Jaishankar said, adding that there are big parts of the world that are left out.
