    US President Barack Obama's announcement of support for India's permanent membership in the UN Security Council (UNSC) is essentially "a cheque that cannot be easily cashed", said a Chinese daily. In an article on Wednesday titled "Obama greets India with more than a lip service?" in People's
    Daily, columnist Li Hongmei wrote: "Much to the delight of Indians...Obama reportedly alluded to what is called the `emphatic endorsement' for a permanent seat for India in the Security Council, even if he essentially handed the Indians a cheque that cannot be easily cashed."

    Support for the permanent UNSC seat for New Delhi was the crowning moment of Obama's Nov 6-9 visit to India.

    Obama told Indian parliament Monday: "Indeed, the just and sustainable international order that America seeks includes a United Nations that is efficient, effective, credible and legitimate.

    "That is why I can say today - in the years ahead, I look forward to a reformed UN Security Council that includes India as a permanent member."

    The People's Daily article said that Obama kickstarted his "biggest ever trade mission" to the city of Mumbai, assuring India "it is never left in the cold by the world's super power".

    It said that "a bulky deal of $10 billion concluded with India and a fat prospect of job offers for more than 50,000 Americans are what Obama needs desperately to shrug off the gloomy situation with a reservoir of domestic troubles".

    Li noted: "What is equally noteworthy is that India is ramping up its military procurement prompted by the alleged threat from China and its ambition to lead the region, making India an attractive market for US defence companies."

    She added: "The US administrations, since George W. Bush, have pinned hope on Delhi to act as the counterweight to Beijing."

    While emphasising that Obama and his wife Michelle "would cherish the common sense of returning good for good, as Indians are anxiously expecting", the article stressed that "not all of the US favours are tangible and accessible".

    Li had a good word for Michelle, whom she described as "charming first lady", who played hopscotch, danced and sang with disadvantaged children from the Indian charity.

    The article went on to say that New Delhi "cannot totally let go (of) the worry that on the US radar screen, strategic vision of India remains diminutive compared with the rivaling Pakistan, and the US would still have to reach out to China while hand-in-hand with India".

    On economic issues, "the US and India are right now singing a duet, echoing each other".

    The article wrapped up, saying: "It is too early to conclude Obama would satisfy the India's expectations better and more concretely than, say, the previous Bush administration."

    "And it is absurd to say Obama's whirlwind tour to India is a proof that the US strategic focus has been shifted from Beijing to Delhi."

    almost all above "support" are just cheap blank checks which can't not be cashed forever!

    After all, Talks are cheap!

    Actually, for a vote in the UN general assembly, the resolution has to be passed by the UNSC first. So, we will need to get the UNSC to pass the resolution without a veto & then it will be forwarded to the UNGA for vote in which we will need the support of at least 134 nations to succeed.

    A long & difficult task.

    Arabnews Editorial: India’s UN claim


    US President Barack Obama has come out in favor of a permanent seat on the UN Security Council for India — and by extension a veto. It is an idea that seems perfectly fair and one that many states around the world endorse. India is the world’s second most populous country and a superpower in the making. Certainly Kashmir should not disbar it from having a permanent seat any more than Tibet disbars China or Northern Ireland the UK from retaining theirs.

    There is nothing surprising about Washington backing reform of the Security Council. It already supports a permanent seat for Japan. The EU, with two permanent members on the council, has also thrown its weight behind reform. A couple of months ago, at the UN annual General Assembly summit, EU leaders lined up to call for UN reform, including permanent seats for India, Japan Brazil and Germany. Russia, too, supports giving them permanent seats.

    Reform is long overdue. It is absurd that the allocation of permanent seats on the Security Council is still based on the victors of World War II. It is a political anachronism. The world moved on long ago. As for the General Assembly, it is illogical that a country like Nauru (population 4,000) has the same voting power as Indonesia (population 240 million) or Nigeria (population 158 million).

    Unfortunately for New Delhi (let along Tokyo, Brasilia and Berlin), reform is anything but a simple matter despite being on the agenda for more than a decade. There are too many competing demands; too many conflicting interests.

    The African Union wants at least one permanent seat — to go to Egypt, Nigeria or South Africa. It is not too difficult to see a squabble between them if the principle were accepted. As for a German seat, it would mean the Europeans ending up with three — not exactly a fair distribution. And what about a Muslim permanent seat? How can the UN have credibility in the Muslim world if a Muslim voice is excluded from the decision-making process? But who should have it? Again, potential for squabbles. Maybe, the answer in the case of the Europeans, Africans and Muslims would be to give permanent seats not to individual states but to the EU, the AU and the OIC. But that moves the UN away from the idea of being an assembly of the world’s states.

    The serious block, however, is China. It had made it clear that, despite the willingness of the other four veto powers, it will not allow either India or Japan to have a permanent seat. In the case of India, this does not stem from any concern to ensure a balance between it and Pakistan. China’s burgeoning relationship with Pakistan is purely strategic, based on Chinese self-interest. That self-interest has led Beijing to increasingly view both India and Japan as rivals to be confronted and curtailed.

    So when Obama told Indian’s parliamentarians on Monday that “in the years ahead, I look forward to a reformed UN Security Council that includes India as a permanent member,” he hit the nail on the head. It will be years ahead before anything happens.
