New Delhi, Mar 02 (ANI): External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar addressed G20 Foreign Ministers’ meeting on March 02. While addressing the meeting, S Jaishankar emphasised the need for democratising global decision-making. “The current global architecture is in its 8th decade. The number of members of the UN has quadrupled in this period. It neither reflects today’s politics, economics, demographics, or aspirations. Since 2005, we have heard sentiments for reform being expressed at the highest level,” said S Jaishankar. “But as we all know, these have not materialised. The reasons are no secret either. The longer we put it off, the more the credibility of multilateralism stands eroded. Global decision-making must be democratised if it has to have a future,” he further added
