UfC Ambassadors meet PGA Francis to discuss Security Council reform

NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 1 – The Ambassadors of the Group United for Consensus met today the President of the General Assembly, Dennis Francis, to discusse the Security Council Reform. Ambassador Maurizio Massari, the Italian Permanent Representative, attended the meeting as chair of the Group. The Inter-Governmental Negotiations (IGN), started in 2009 with the participation of all Member States, is the only setting for fully inclusive and transparent negotiations for a Member State-led reform to make the  Security Council truly representative, democratic and accountable, said the Italian Mission on X.

PGA Francis welcomed the meeting with the UfC Ambassadors. He stressed that Security Council reform remains a critical issue on the UN agenda, “especially during these times of unprecedented crises”, and added that he is ready to support the UN membership’s efforts to make further progress in the IGN process.

Within the Inter-Governmental Negotiations, Italy exerts the role of “focal point” of UfC. The Group is composed by  Countries from every region that share key principles, especially in opposing new permanent national seats. While the current status of the five permanent members is rooted in the historical circumstances following the end of the Second World War, UfC Countries are against any reform that would envisage the creation of additional and unjustifiable privileged positions within the international community, to the detriment of the general interest of the UN membership.
