President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s call for UN reform in recent years has won universal support.

Confirming this view within the scope of his African tour, Erdogan received support from Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.

After Valdai’s meeting in Sochi, Lavrov said that “there are more countries in the world now than there were when the United Nations was founded.”

He said that the need for reform had emerged, and expressed the need to reorganize the Security Council in light of these facts.


“I agree with Erdogan that the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council do not have the right to dictate the fate of the world,” the Russian foreign minister said.

Noting that Western countries keep the Security Council under control, Lavrov said that “the participation of Asian, African and developing Latin American countries in the Security Council must be guaranteed.”
