Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the G4 countries have upped their ante for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council by staying committed to peace and security.

Moreover, Prime Minister said at the G4 summit held in New York, "The UN Security Council must include the world's largest democracies, major locomotives of the global economy, and voices from all the major continents."

Aiming at reform of UNSC, he said, "The subject of reforms in the UNSC has been the focus of global attention for decades, but unfortunately without progress."

The Prime Minister said the world today lived in a fundamentally different era from when the UN was born, faced with complex, and undefined challenges.

The meeting was scheduled with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.
