After the new President Joe Biden took over power in the US, everyone’s eyes are on what the new US administration looks like for relations with India. It is expected that Biden will take the India-US friendship to a new level. But America’s stance on India’s permanent membership of the UN Security Council has started to change. There is no clear indication of India’s support in the Security Council by the US administration.

According to a leading daily report, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, America’s designated envoy to the United Nations, did not explain anything when asked about her support for India’s permanent membership. Greenfield has only described it as a matter of discussion. He said, ‘There are some talks about his membership in the Security Council. But I also know that there are some other countries, who do not want to make these countries representative of their region. This is also a matter of negotiation.

Prior to Joe Biden, during the time of George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump, the three former presidents, there has been strong support from the US for India’s membership of the Security Council. These three former rulers also openly supported the move with India. In such a situation, the signs of change can put constraints on India’s campaign.

It goes on to say that Joe Biden promised to support India’s permanent membership of the Security Council during the elections in the year 2020. Recently, he also supported bringing an ordinance to give citizenship to migrants after taking the oath. Due to which about 5 lakh migrant Indians can be benefited.
