Letter dated 18 June 2001 from the Deputy Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations addressed to the Bureau of the Working Group, containing a proposal by Pakistan

The United Nations was created on the basis of sovereign equality of States. However, in the aftermath of the Second World War, certain countries managed to acquire an exalted status on the Security Council with permanent membership and veto power. Any reform process must be aimed at removing the existing imbalance and inequality in the membership of the Security Council.
