China's Xi supports India's aspiration for greater U.N. role

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - China supports India’s aspiration to play a greater role at the United Nations, including on the Security Council, President Xi Jinping said in a speech on Thursday after a summit with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

India has no permanent seat on the Security Council despite being home to a seventh of the world’s population. China is one of the council’s five permanent members, together with the United States, Russia, Britain and France.
