On May 23, during President Bident’s visit to Japan, he expressed his support for Japan to become permanent member of UN Security Council.

The UN Security Council has significant global influence. It can ratify new members and amend the UN Charter; it can authorize peacekeeping missions, authorize military action and issue sanctions, which became especially important after the Russian invasion. Currently, there are five permanent members: the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China. Each of the five permanent members has the right to veto resolutions on non-procedural matters.

It is reported that Biden had a one-on-one meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo, and Biden expressed his firm support for Japan to become a permanent member. To effectively meet the challenges, they also discussed the Japan-U.S. alliance and ways to ensure security and cooperation on the international community.

According to another analysis, Japan’s permanent membership of the Security Council will add another country in the Indo-Pacific region that can restrain the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). With Japan’s participation, the international community’s concerns about the CCP’s violation of human rights and the CCP’s aggression against Taiwan will be much lessened.

In addition, Kishida directly attacked the CCP, saying: “Resolutely oppose attempts to change the status quo by force, anywhere in the world.”
