Malaysia Calls for Abolishing Veto Powers in the UN for Failure to Pass Ceasefire in Gaza

Malaysia has called for the termination of veto powers currently held by the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, which include the US, China, Russia, France and the UK. 

The call for the abolishment of the veto power comes in the wake of the US abusing its veto power for the third time against a ceasefire in Gaza, which has led to the deaths of more than 30,000 Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli regime, also causing a massive humanitarian catastrophe in the besieged Gaza Strip. 

“Malaysia is also of the view that to be effective and more accountable, the veto should be exercised by at least 2 of the P5 members and supported by 3 non-permanent members of the security council,” the Malaysian spokesman said.

“However, in the long run, we believe that the veto has no place in modern and democratic multilateral architecture. Malaysia wishes to reiterate our call for the veto to be abolished,” the spokesman added.
