In a written reply during question-hour, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan is not in quest for a permanent seat of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). He said that the idea of permanent membership in UNSC is contrary to the spirit of democracy and accountability. Restructuring of the UNSC, he said, should be done only after developing a consensus among all nine member countries. He said that some countries are insisting on getting permanent status due to which other countries are being divided. The desires of individual countries have held the procedure of restructuring of the Security Council as hostage. He said that the Security Council is an important institution of United Nations and its basic responsibility is to maintain international security. The Security Councils is answerable in front of members of the United Nations while there are 5 permanent and 10 temporary members in United Nations. He said that the efforts to bring reforms in the Security Council was started in 1990 and 5 issues including reformed councils volume, categories of seats, right of veto, colloquial representation and its working procedure and ties with General Assembly were center of all attentions. He said that some countries that wanted the permanent membership are making such propagandas. He further said that circumstances of 1945 are different from 21st centaury as we are living in age of democracy, supremacy of law, equality and accountability. In this age of democracy we need such Security Council that would be transparent and democratic answerable to United Nations usual membership. He said that we wanted such reforms in which small and middle states could had enough chances to play vital role in international peace and stability so thats why on the basis of the rule, supported extension of permanent membership of Security Council in Pakistan otherwise, idea of permanent membership in United Nations Security Council is against the spirit of democracy and accountability. He said that we think that United nations and up coming generation could not be ruin by politics of power and dominance. He said that restructuring of the Security Council should be made with complete consensus of member countries. He said that we support extension of non-permanent membership in the Security Council so that it could cater demands of 21st centaury.
