Japan views realizing reform of the United Nations Security Council as an issue of primary importance. In order to make the Security Council more broadly representative, efficient and transparent, and thus further enhance its effectiveness and legitimacy, Japan is working proactively to achieve an early reform of the Security Council.
Intergovernmental negotiations on Security Council reform have been taking place since February 2009, and interactive discussions also took place during the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
As a member of the G4, comprising Brazil, Germany, India and Japan, Japan aims for expansion in both categories of membership. Taking a pragmatic perspective and in a spirit of flexibility, Japan will continue to engage actively in discussions with other UN Member States.
