Security Council Reform

Japan views realizing reform of the United Nations Security Council as a diplomatic issue of primary importance. In order to render the Security Council more effective and more representative, Japan is working proactively to increase both the permanent and non-permanent membership of the Council.

Intergovernmental negotiations on Security Council reform have been taking place since February 2009, and discussions are taking place during the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

As a member of the G4, comprising Brazil, Germany, India and Japan, we aim 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 in order to make progress towards reform of the Security Council.
