外文标题：China backs bigger role for India, Brazil at UNSC
BEIJING: China today said it respects the aspirations of India and Brazil to play bigger roles at the UN Security Council, while keeping mum on Japan's candidature.
About the Indian and Brazilian applications to become permanent members, China respects the willingness of the two countries to play a bigger role in the UN body, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.
Hua, however, told reporters that Beijing would like to reach a "broadest consensus through diplomatic means" on UNSC reform.
She was replying to a question whether Beijing backs Brazil to become a permanent member of the UNSC in the backdrop of China and Russia supporting India's candidature at a recent Russia, India, China (RIC) foreign ministers meeting here.
The joint statement after the meeting attended by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said: "Foreign Ministers of China and Russia reiterated the importance they attached to the status of India in international affairs and supported its aspiration to play a greater role in the United Nations."
Hua said China pays high attention to the desire of Brazil to play bigger role in the UNSC.

A bigger role for India at UN could be it is made head of "Swachh Earth" campaign of UN or about women right "UN Betti Bachao" campaign. Brazil is a "Bankrupt" country, spending more than it could ever make. China is sucking their natural resources and would like Brazil to be at the table because Brazil would kowtow China.
