MOSCOW, October 6. /TASS/. Russia is ready to discuss all options for the UN Security Council’s reform, but encourages bringing about changes to the Council by international consensus, the head of Russia’s Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Committee for International Affairs Konstantin Kosachev said on Thursday.
At a meeting with the young representatives from political, public and media circles of Latin American countries and Spain, Kosachyov noted that there were "various schools of thought", various ideas as to "how to reshape the Security Council". "Russia is open to the discussion and does not rule out any of these ideas and schools of thought. We are not adamant that the Security Council cannot be subject to reform," Kosachev added, stressing that a careful approach to this issue should be adopted. He also said that "the current structure of the UN Security Council should not be demolished, if we are not sure that the new structure would be any better."
According to the senator, Russia is actively cooperating with all the UN Security Council reform advocates.
"We expect that sooner or later this work will produce results," he said. In his opinion, Brazil would be the most appropriate and worthy candidate to be included into the renewed UN Security Council "when the world community reaches a consensus on this." "It is very important to ensure the consensus on the reform," Kosachev pointed out.
He noted that the UN in general also needed reform, since at present it could not be considered an efficient organization given the numerous violations of the UN Charter. In this regard, he mentioned "the United States’ specific activities in Syria" which the UN was unable to oppose.
