Biden's speech at the UN General Assembly, proposing expansion of the Security Council, targeting Russia, China's position is clear


2022-09-23: [Chinese Article Link]  During that time, the topic of Security Council reform was once again the focus of international public opinion, particularly in the aftermath of the Russian-Ukraine conflict, when Western countries began to besiege Russia in an attempt to weaken the Russian side's voice in the United Nations, thus beginning to propose an expansion of the Council, and Japan, India, Germany and Japan expressed their desire for “normality” and Biden expressed their support in the General Assembly. On 21 September, Biden was reported to have addressed the United Nations General Assembly, stating that the United States had always not sought conflict, advocated cooperation and had not forced any country to stand up in support of the work of the United Nations, and calling on all Member States to abide by the Charter of the United Nations. In fact, according to the information available, the United States had still to pay $693 million in 2022, but it was still in arrears and its contributions from previous years had still not been paid in full. According to the media, the total arrears already owed by the United States amounted to more than $1 billion, accounting for two thirds of the total arrears. It was clear that the conduct of the United States had seriously affected the normal functioning of the United Nations, and Biden did not seem to be in a position to call on others to abide by the Charter of the United Nations. The expansion of the Council was also highlighted by Biden, who hoped that the number of permanent members would be increased and that a number of countries that had long supported permanent membership would be included, so that the needs of the world today could be effectively addressed and the veto should be used with caution. At present, the world is seeking permanent membership, with four major countries, namely Germany, Japan, India and Pakistan, as well as Turkey, Egypt and South Africa, as the “Union of Four Nations” of a few years ago. The German side seems to have a stronger attitude than the Japanese-Indian countries, and Chancellor Scholtz stated in his address to the General Assembly that the German side is now ready to assume more international responsibilities in order to become a member of the Council in 2027-2028, and he hopes that all countries will support Germany's candidacy and be willing to abide by the rules of the United Nations and to participate actively in cooperation. There are now five permanent members, the Chinese, the Russian and the Russian, and while many have expressed their dissatisfaction with the current permanent membership of the Council and have called for reform and expansion, the lack of consensus has delayed the commencement of Council reform, and this time the United States has publicly expressed its desire for expansion, with the main aim of stifling Russia and China. Byzantine this time, trying to link United Nations reform to the weakening of the Russian side's voice at the United Nations, it is clear that the United States is taking advantage of the fight against Russia by choosing to join the Council in favour of Japan, Germany, India, Pakistan or any other country. Although American support will eventually become an empty cheque, the United States has already revealed its desire to use the United Nations as its “political weapon” and has taken this opportunity to crush Russia. If the plot of the United States succeeds, the next goal is definitely China, and China immediately stated its position on the matter. On 21 September, the Foreign Minister of China and Russia met in New York. Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that the United Nations belongs not only to the United States, but to all. As one of the “P5s”, Russia is an indispensable force of the United Nations, and no country can deny it this right. At the same time, Foreign Minister Wang Yi stated that, as the international situation has changed profoundly and the epidemic continues, the two countries should continue to strengthen their cooperation to meet the challenges and promote security initiatives in order to make the world order more just. The statement made by Foreign Minister Wang Yi is of great importance to the Russian side, as Russia has been blocked by Western countries and even the United States has refused to issue visas to the Russian side, making it possible for Lavrov to be unable to participate in the meetings of the General Assembly. Moreover, China and Russia have “one veto” and the two major demands made by Biden before the Council will not be fulfilled. Although Biden once again stated in his speech that he did not wish to fight the “new cold war” with China, it is up to the United States to make a final judgement.
