The reform of the United Nations Security Council is a priority for world governance. Many states have made a case for the creation of a council which is more legitimate, more representative, effective and efficient, with a greater number of permanent and non-permanent posts.
Japan has demonstrated that it has the determination, will and capacity to assume greater responsibility as a permanent member of the Security Council, in order to maintain international peace and security.
This was one of the matters covered during the meeting that the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, held with non-permanent member countries of this world organisation, including Equatorial Guinea, with H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo leading.
The meeting was also attended by other countries from the African continent, from whom the Japanese Prime Minister asked for support for the post of permanent member of the council.
The issue of North Korea and the end to military hostilities was also on the agenda for the summit.
The leaders present gave their opinions on the matter, and the President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, asked for the dismantling of nuclear weapons in order to achieve true world peace.
The setting up of cooperation between Japan and Africa in the fight against terrorism was another important matter looked at during the forum.
With this meeting, the second day of the schedule of the 72nd United National General Assembly in New York came to a close.
