UNSC an 'impaired organ', failed to act with credibility: India at UNGA
India on Tuesday said that the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) had become an "impaired organ" as it "failed to act with credibility essentially due to its unrepresentative nature". Speaking at the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), TS Tirumurti, India's Permanent Representative to the UN, noted that the IGN (Intergovernmental Negotiations) has become like a platform for debate in the university rather than a serious result-oriented process in the UN consisting of sovereign member states.
"Today's Security Council is an impaired organ. It has been unable to act with credibility essentially due to its unrepresentative nature. But then, what is happening inside the IGN process, which we seem to be wedded to," Tirumurti asked at the session. He further said that nothing had moved inside the IGN for over a decade "except hearing passionate statements on the need to reform".
