"So far it is not doing enough of this. Nowhere is this more evident than in the structure of the Security Council. I am therefore pleased that more and more partners, including three of the permanent members, have declared their willingness to move forward on reform," Scholz said.
In addition, Scholz stated that the United Nations should "not cling to the status quo and turn to the challenges of the future".
With this, the German Chancellor emphasized that Africa, Asia, and Latin America should have a greater voice at the United Nations.
Scholz stated that Germany, as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, wants to assume responsibility in this regard and asked for support for Germany's candidature for the 2027-2028 term.
The German Chancellor noted that today there are not two but many centers of power in the world compared to 50 years ago.
"Multipolarity is not a new order. Those who think that small countries are the backyard of big countries are wrong," Scholz added.
The United Nations must show that there is no place for "revisionism and imperialism" in the multipolar world of the 21st century, Scholz said, condemning the use of violence as a political tool and calling for respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity, and political independence of countries.
