Related to recent articles on US, Japan, China, here is something to read:

Note the following:
WASHINGTON The United States announced Thursday that it would propose remaking the UN Security Council to include two new permanent members, one of which would be Japan.

It offered no recommendation for a second new member, but the Bush administration has given indications it wanted the other seat to represent the developing world.


I don't really know of any other candidates for UNSC from the developing world more suitable than India. Brazil might aspire to it, but they are quite a bit behind India.
