The United States will press for reform of the UN Security Council

The United States will press for reform of the UN Security Council President Joe Biden said Tuesday that the United States will continue to push for much-needed reforms at the U.N. Security Council, mired in a persistent “impasse” that prevents the body from carrying out its essential functions.

Biden told world leaders in his speech at the 78th UN General Assembly that his administration “has engaged in serious consultations with many member states” on expanding the Council, and said Washington “will continue to do its part to advance efforts of reform”.

“We must be able to break the stalemate that too often hinders progress and blocks consensus within the Council. We need more voices, more perspectives around the table,” he said at the international organization’s headquarters in New York.

“The United States is working at all levels to make global institutions more responsive, more effective, and more inclusive,” he said.

“We will reject aggression and intimidation to defend the rules of the road, from freedom of navigation to theft and a level economic playing field, that have helped safeguard security and prosperity for decades. But we are also willing to work with China on issues where progress depends on our joint efforts,” he said.
