The needed of a Security Council Reform
During a conference held in Rome on 16 May 2011, the UN General Assembly President Joseph Deiss, argued the importance of a Security Council reform to avoid the loss of credibility of the United Nations.
“Unless we find the determination to advance on this issue, the United Nations will lose its credibility,” he said. “Our organization will be marginalized, and important issues will be discussed in other forums and groupings which are perceived to be more efficient and more representative of the new realities of the day.”
According to Mr. Deiss, five principles are indispensable to achieve an effective reform: the broadest possible support; the conformity with the principles and values of the UN; full comprehensibility; adaptability to crisis situations; structure flexibility.
