UN 2 Feb. /TASS./ The General Assembly (GA) of the United Nations on Thursday resumed talks on Security Council reform, unsuccessfully running for many years. Speaking at a public meeting preceding the beginning of the next round of intergovernmental discussions, the permanent representative of Russia to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia urged countries to show “political wisdom” and work on rapprochement of positions, and to resist attempts to “boost reform”, which only aggravate the atmosphere.
