New York, September 23: The Group of Four (G4) foreign ministers expressed dissatisfaction with the ongoing lack of progress in the Inter-Governmental Negotiations (IGN) on Security Council reform, and reiterated their determination to work toward initiating text-based negotiations in the IGN, according to a press release released by the G4 Ministers on September 22.They agreed that the IGN must be guided by the United Nations Charter of Decision Making and the General Assembly's laws and procedures in order to achieve concrete results, and they expressed disappointment with concerted attempts to stall this process and reiterated their dedication to addressing the issue in a decisive way and with greater urgency in the 77th session.The G4 Ministers applauded the President's simple proposal to shift the process toward text-based negotiations, and expressed optimism that this plan would be followed by all delegations in the 77th General Assembly Session.The Ministers reiterated the importance of increasing the Council's presence in both permanent and non-permanent categories of membership in order to ensure that it is able to respond effectively to the world's ever-changing challenges in terms of international peace and security.The Ministers praised the United Nations High Summit Outcome Document, in which all HOSGs agreed to initiate timely Security Council reforms, and in this regard, renewed their support for each other's bids for permanent members in a reformed Security Council, recalling the 2005 General Assembly Declaration, in which all HOSGs agreed to instilled new life into the discussions, including other countries and groups, in the joint statement.
