Says permanent members are nominated in UN Charter and do not represent any region
Pakistan says expansion in UNSC's non-permanent seats is the only way to ensure regional representation.
Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi told a U.N. panel, that the Council needs to be expanded in a manner that gives a greater chance of representation to the regional groups.
In her remarks, she said that the countries in the permanent category were "nominated" in the UN Charter and they do not represent any region.
