Jaishankar says India will surely get Security Council seat but not easily
Perth, Feb 10 (PTI) External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said on Saturday that he was 100 per cent confident that India will get a permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council but it won’t be easy as there are a lot of countries who want to “block us”.
Jaishankar, who is here to attend the two-day Indian Ocean Conference, said he sees the change as to how differently the world looks at India now as he goes around the world.
“We will get there. I am 100 per cent certain we will get there. But I will also tell you that honestly, we will not get it easily because the world is full of competition,” he said in response to a question at an interaction with the Indian community here.
