Brazil Would Take a Seat at UN Even Without Veto Power

A group of four countries that are seeking permanent seats on the UN Security Council, known as the G-4, which consists of Brazil, Germany, India and Japan, have presented a revised proposal for the reform of the council.

In the document, the G-4 say they will not seek veto powers for a 15-year period if they are given permanent seats on the Security Council.


The only permanent members of the council at this time, China, England, France, Russia and the United States, all have veto powers.


Last month, Brazil’s ex-Minister of Defense, Ambassador José Viegas, visited South American countries in an effort to get their backing for Brazil’s ambitions concerning the UN.


Viegas’s trip was part of a government strategy to gather the support of Latin American countries for the Brazilian candidature for a permanent seat in the United Nations (UN) Security Council.


José Viegas visited Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Chile.
