India, Africa cannot be excluded from security council: Sushma Swaraj

By Ians

New Delhi, Oct 27: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday said India and Africa can no longer be excluded from the permanent membership of the UN Security Council.

She said the 70th session of the UN General Assembly was an opportune moment to achieve concrete results on this long pending issue.

Sushma talks tough at India Africa Forum

Speaking at the ministerial meeting of the Third India-Africa Forum Summit here, the minister said that unless there were more democratic global governance structures, a more equitable international security and development framework will continue to elude the world.

"How can we expect legitimacy from structure that excludes African continent and a country representing 1/6th of humanity," she said.

She also said: "We are very happy to host African students in India. They enrich our cultural fabric, contribute to mutual learning."
