UNITED NATIONS, September 29. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has called to limit the right to veto at the United Nations Security Council.
"Collective voice of our Organization should be clear," he told the current session of the United Nations General Assembly. "Ukraine stands for the gradual limitation of the veto right with its further cancellation."
Moreover, he said the transfer of the permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council from the former Soviet Union to the Russian Federation was a "questionable procedure."
The Ukrainian president also called to focus on the modernization of the United Nations Security Council and improvement of methods of its work. "The membership of the UN Security Council should reflect realities of the 21st century by representing larger quantity of African, Asian and Latin American States," Poroshenko said. "Additional non-permanent seat in the Council should be given to the Eastern European Group of countries — its composition doubled during the last two decades."
