Pakistan opposes the creation of new permanent seats in Security Council terming it a violation of UN charter and contrary to the universally agreed principles of democracy, accountability and transparency.

This was stated by Pakistan's permanent Representative to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi , while speaking in the General Assembly on Security Council reform.

She said Pakistan's goal is the democratization of the Council through a reform that promotes the interests and aspirations of all UN members.
