Obama backs India for U.N. security council seat
NEW DELHI |
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday told Indian parliament he backed New Delhi's case for a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council, a copy of his prepared speech showed.
"I look forward to a reformed U.N. Security Council that includes India as a permanent member," he said.
Obama's trip to India is aimed to seal big-ticket business deals to secure jobs and exports as well as countering Indian perceptions he has relegated Asia's third-largest economy behind rivals China and Pakistan.
During a 10-day trip to Asia that will also take him to Indonesia, South Korea and Japan, Obama will push to resolve global financial imbalances, an issue he will make a focus of debate at next week's G20 heads of state meet in Seoul.
