United Nations Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

Fifty-Ninth General Assembly Plenary 111th Meeting (PM)

Monday, 07 November 2005
New York

DAW PENJO (Bhutan) said his country had co-sponsored the draft resolution because it presented concrete 
proposals to reform the Security Council and it was now time for the General Assembly to take decisive 
action in that regard. The draft resolution sought to achieve a fair and equitable balance in the permanent 
category of the Council’s membership, making it possible for countries from all regions and those with 
different levels of development to serve. The proposals on working methods were the most comprehensive 
so far, and provided the scope for small countries like Bhutan to make useful contributions. It was to be 
hoped that world leaders would gather in September to give new direction to the United Nations by 
implementing the proposals.
