The United Nations Organization (UN) must change and cannot remain the same as it was 60 years ago, when it was created, said Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, in a press conference, when asked about the country’s negotiations to get a permanent seat at UN Security Council.
"The geography has changed, politics have changed, economy has changed, and commercial geography has also changed. It is necessary to have more democracy and representativeness at the UN," justified the President.
According to Lula, when all continents and political forces become represented at the UN, its decisions will be effectively followed.
This Wednesday, February 8, Lula began a trip to four African countries (Algeria, Benin, Botswana and South Africa). Algeria was his first stop.
