Pakistan on Saturday rejected India’s demand for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council, saying there’s no place for a fascist state in a sensitive decision-making body.

Earlier in the day, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a strong pitch for a more prominent role in the UN Security Council, asking: “Till when do we have to wait? Till when will India be kept away from the UN’s decision-making process?”

Last week, the Indian government announced that it was according “highest priority” to getting a permanent seat on the UNSC.

“It’s a pipe dream,” said Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN, Ambassador Munir Akram, while responding to the demand. “The world does not want a fascist state as a permanent member of the Security Council.”
