India wins non-permanent seat at UNSC

India has won a non-permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC ) after years of intense diplomatic canvassing. India got 187 votes in the 192-member UN General Assembly, which met on 12th October 2010.
India was standing unopposed for the Asia seat after the only other contestant in this category, Kazakhstan, withdrew from the race in December last year. Each non-permanent country stays on the council for two years, alongside the permanent powers: Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, who have the right to veto any council resolution.
Now India would be looking at a claim for a permanent seat when serious negotiations begin for expanding the Security Council next year. Germany too made it to the Security Council. Had Germany lost, it would have been a setback for India because G-4, which wants the Security Council expansion, are all in UNSC now and can work together.
