The call for reform from a somewhat surprising area:
Afghan president Hamid Karzai and Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the United Nations Security Council does not repsent democracy and urged for a reform in UN Security Council.
While speaking during the Bali Democracy Forum in Indonesia President Karzai said, “Coming to the global democratic governance, I think there is no disagreement here, that it isn’t just nor is it very democratic, the security council does not represent all of us, the five permanent members having the right of veto is not democratic and the relationship between the Security Council and the General Assembly is not democratic and of course, we all wish it to be democratic.”
President Karzai further added, “How do we get there, Afghanistan is too small and insignificant to make an impact but the talk we will, democracy allows that, the freedom of speech. So we do ask for a more democratic global order and we hope all of us together can push for that.”
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan also said the decision regarding the future of world belongs to five nations as the UN Security Council is comprised of five permanent members and ten temporary members.
He said, “We want to experience a change in UN Security Council and the new formation which should lead justice and equality.”
