Finland supports UN Reform

Helsingin Sanomat, Finland's leading newspaper reported that Finland supports German and Japanese model for UN reform

"Finland has given its support to the expansion of the United Nations Security Council in the manner proposed by Germany, Japan, Brazil, and India. Under the model, the council would get six new permanent members which would not have a right to veto decisions in the way that the present five permanent members do.

In the model supported by Finland, the new permanent members would include the four sponsors of the initiative, as well as two African countries. Competing for the African seats are Egypt, South Africa, and Nigeria."

Finland should go further and support the Move of the UN from the US if it really wants a reform that would have some meaning.
