According to the British "Daily Telegraph" reported on the 18th, on the occasion of the United Nations General Assembly, US President Biden is expected to call for reform of the United Nations Security Council and let Germany, Japan and other countries "enter the normal" to confront China and Russia.

White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told The Telegraph on the eve of the UN General Assembly that the US president will ask the 193 member states of the United Nations to "review the structure of the Security Council." It is reported that Biden is pushing for "five to six" countries to become new permanent members of the Security Council, including India, Brazil, Germany and Japan. It is not clear whether they have veto power after joining.

In an interview with The Telegraph at the White House, Kirby reportedly said, "I think you're going to hear Biden talk more about this, and we've made it clear that we think it's time to look at the structure of the Security Council."

According to US media reports, Biden has now arrived in New York to prepare for the United Nations General Assembly. The Daily Telegraph said that Biden will speak on the 19th local time, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is also expected to speak at the United Nations General Assembly for the first time since the beginning of the war in Ukraine.

At present, there are 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council with veto power. There are 10 non-permanent members serving two-year terms without veto power. After the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, in order to limit Russia's veto power, the Western bloc led by the United States vigorously promoted the reform of the Security Council, allowing Germany and Japan and other countries to "enter the normal". In order to achieve reform, the Security Council needs the support of more than two-thirds (129 countries) of the 193 countries currently members, and a resolution in the UN General Assembly resolution to ratify the amendment to the UN Charter, including the five permanent members of the Security Council.

In this regard, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zakharova said in July, "Increasing the number of Western countries that have been overrepresented in the UN Security Council will not make it more democratic or facilitate the creation of a fairer system of international affairs." In particular, the quest of Germany and Japan for permanent membership in the United Nations is totally unfounded. On the other hand, she said, Moscow tends to invite developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Media: The real purpose of the US Promise to Support India's Accession to the Standing Is to Confront China and Russia

For occasions like the G20, it's more about sitting down and talking about economic development. For the United States, don't say anything useless. This way, not good!

For the first time in history, the G20 Summit was held in India.

U.S. President Joe Biden, who arrived in New Delhi, was busy holding meetings with his host, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. After the meeting, while the G20 leaders' summit had not yet begun, they seized the time to hold a joint press conference of US and Indian leaders.

It is not difficult to see that Biden patted his chest and promised to support India's membership in the permanent membership of the UN Security Council. But in the view of Xiaojiu, the United States is giving a hollow soup ball, and its real purpose has also been announced at the press conference, that is, to further deepen US-Indian relations...


Deepening US-India relations, Biden is not just talking.

The news from the press conference is that the leaders of the United States and India welcomed the approval of the US Congress to cooperate with Hindustan Aeronautical to produce F414 engines in India;

The United States and India also announced a second ship repair agreement, in which India will maintain U.S. Navy ships in its own country;

The United States also welcomes the acquisition of 31 MQ-9B drones by the Indian Ministry of Defense to enhance India's intelligence gathering capabilities.

At the same time, the two countries will strengthen cooperation in the field of nuclear energy.

Of course, for India, it is natural that "the United States supports India's membership in the permanent membership of the United Nations."

So can India's aspiration to join the ranks of permanent members of the United Nations be achieved?

In Uncle Hai's view, the United States is giving India a hollow rice ball!

How do you say this?

Anyway, if you look at the G20 this time, are there two top leaders of important G20 members who are not present? Both countries also happen to be among the five permanent members of the United Nations. In other words, without the unanimous consent of the five permanent members, which country might join the ranks of permanent members?

Doesn't Biden understand that his own promises to Modi in this regard are not worth anything?

As for the Modi side, of course, he has his own considerations -

It is India's goal to join the ordinary state, and to this end, it even does not hesitate to hook up with Japan and support each other. In other words, India once hoped to join Japan in encouraging both countries to enter the normal.

However, this is all wishful thinking! Does the whole nation of Japan have a thorough and correct understanding of the war of aggression of that year? No, right? I can't even do this, what else is it?

As for India, at present, it is actually a step-by-step work. Modi understands that after he finishes the work of the United States, the work of China, Russia and France must be done, and the work of the former metropolis of Britain must be done. Anyway, I don't know when to do it is a head.

At this time, Modi got Biden's promise - with a promise, it is better than nothing.

But for the United States, which hopes to dominate the so-called "Indo-Pacific" strategy, it has been given the opportunity for military enterprises to develop in India, and it seems that there are more opportunities to use India to confront China and Russia in the future.


Uncle Hai wants to say that after India's independence, on the whole, it is based on the idea of non-alignment, but it is actually more pro-Soviet. This is not only reflected in the fact that the Indian constitution claims to be a socialist country, but also in its in-depth cooperation with the Soviet Union in the military field and Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

In fact, India's conflict with Pakistan and Pakistan's warmer relationship with the United States forced India to make this choice.

For many years, India's weapon systems, whether navy or air force, have been a collection of weapons for all nations, but it is also a fact that many of the large ordnance and main weapons come from Russia.

Now, Biden wants to strengthen military cooperation between the United States and India, especially in the field of military production, and the United States will tilt towards India to a certain extent. However, in Uncle Hai's opinion, this is a bit wishful thinking. You know—

In the so-called "Indo-Pacific" strategy, India's "Indo-Pacific" strategy and the United States' "Indo-Pacific" strategy are inherently different.

India also believes that it is the "general" of the Indian Ocean, and also believes that the United States should respect India as a major power in the "Indo-Pacific" strategy. India does not want to be America's little brother.

The contradiction between India and Pakistan, if it is not eliminated one day, India will not be able to fall headlong into the arms of the United States. After all, Pakistan's long-standing relationship with the United States is something India fears.

India has its own great power thinking, which is evident in the recent G7 pressure on India and India unmoved.

The G7 encouraged India to invite Ukraine to participate in the G20 Leaders' Summit, and hoped that the outcome document of this G20 Leaders' Summit would be stuffed with content condemning Russia and supporting Ukraine.

But the Modi authorities were unmoved -

First, Modi did not invite Ukraine, which is not a member of the G20, to the meeting. This time, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky lost the opportunity to give a video speech at the G20 occasion.

Second, Modi seems to disagree with condemning Russia. As a result, there is no naming of Russia in the communiqué. This caused dissatisfaction on the Ukrainian side, which was not eligible to attend.


India considers itself a big country, an ancient civilization with more history than the United States. How can such a country succumb to the arrogance of the United States from the bottom of its heart?

The United States has given India some favors in the field of military industry, and Modi will naturally laugh.

If the United States has promised India to welcome them, will India refuse them?

But the United States is trying to use these as bait to win India over to do something that India did not want to do, I am afraid it is thinking too much.

In fact, for occasions like the G20, it is more time to sit down and talk about economic development. For the United States, don't say anything useless. This way, not good!
