'india To Be A Super Power In 25 Years'

Recommended Posts

New Delhi, February 12: Visualising India to be one of the super powers in the next 25 years, former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros Ghali on Saturday said the development would help democratisation of the world body.

 

"In the next 25 years, we will have new important states, among them new super powers India, China, Russia, USA and European Union. This will help in democratisation of the UN," he told reporters in New Delhi.

 

Favouring the expansion of the UN Security Council, Ghali said without the political will of the member states it would not be possible to achieve.

 

"The extension of the Security Council is something positive and again it depends on what will be the direction of countries like India or will they accept to have a permanent seat without the veto," Ghali, who headed the UN before the incumbent Kofi Annan, said.

On chances of India getting a permanent seat in the UNSC, he said, "With veto power, it will be more difficult, and without veto there are 99 per cent chances of getting the seat." observing that unilateral decisions have created crisis for the UN, he said the new world order might help making the body a more democratic one.
