China’s stance on UNSC Reform: The Developing World Factor

Issue & Policy Briefs March 23, 2011, No. 62

Pursuing smart diplomacy, building global alliance and pushing the cause of the developing world has been the hallmark of Chinese global diplomacy in recent times. Beijing’s advocacy for greater partaking in African and developing world for UNSC representation is a testimony of that. While China’s stance on the UN Security Council reform is closely linked to its broader dialogue of reforming the UN, the immediate policy priority that Beijing holds with regard to the reform is how to reduce the impact and pre-eminence of the United States and its allies, and use the UN as a forum for its global presence and objectives.
