US Ambassador to India Richard Verma has affirmed his country’s support to India’s aspiration for a permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

Verma, addressing mediapersons at the end of his two-day familiarisation tour at Kolkatta said: “The US strongly supports India for a permanent representation in the UN.”

On reports that the US had not lent its backing to India’s claim for the UNSC seat, the US Ambassador said such reports were not based on facts and held no truth. “I want to clarify it once and for all that the US supports India’s claim for the UNSC seat,” he said. Verma, however, added: “It is a long and complicated process to reform the UN. But we are working hard on it.” He also mentioned US’ support and backing to India as an emerging global power in all forums.
