BEIJING: India's alliance with Japan, Germany and Brazil to press for a permanent seat in the expanded UN Security Council is "a biggest mistake", an article in the state-run Chinese daily said today.
"This year marks the 70th anniversary of the UN, and appeals for UN Security Council (UNSC) reform are becoming increasingly louder," Liu Zongyi, research fellow at the state-run Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, wrote in an article published in the Global Times.
The G4 nations namely Brazil, India, Germany and Japan, are the most active in calling for a change, it said.
Since the UN General Assembly on September 14 adopted a negotiating text, setting the stage for talks on the reform, "some Indian media acclaimed that the nation's bid for permanent UNSC seat has been boosted. However, in reality, it will take a long time to discuss only the wording of this document," the article said.

If Beijing understands New Delhi's aspiration to play a bigger role in the UN then China should not oppose India

simply illusion - a pak effect
Biggest Reform of UNSC would be to Expand its Role from Security to (include). ..Economy and Climate. So UNSE&CC in place of UNSC, now that Economic and Climate Issues are more and more important than just Security (..Roots of which incidentally have been Economy, Energy and Climate!)

Let us all thank nehru for this amazing prize as well. In 1955, India had an opportunity to become UNSC permanent member - but the commie-at-heart nehru wanted China to join USSR at UNSC. Today, we continue to be outsiders.
If we don't get permanent seat with veto we should just ignore the UN and stop contributing finance as well as manpower _______ just withdraw from UN membership _____________ As our economy grows our military strength will also grow and no one will be able to take decisions at UN without consulting with us.______________________ Even at present rate of growth we will be be among top 5 economies in the world in the next 5 to 6 years____________

India paying price after joining hands Japan. China & Russia both playing vital role to UNSC seat. In this contrast India chance is remote and Japan may get the chance as predicted by China.
