Singapore Backs Permanent UN Security Council Seat for India

Nov. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Singapore supports a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council for India, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said during a state visit by his counterpart from the South Asian country.

“We support India’s permanent membership in an expanded United Nations Security Council,” Lee said at the lunch he hosted today for Premier Manmohan Singh. “India has much to contribute to the stability and progress of Asia.”

India is serving the final leg of a two-year term on the council’s rotating seats. Five permanent seats in the council are held by the U.S., Russia, China, France and the U.K.
