While the UN Security Council rejected a resolution on Ukraine by Russia's veto and pointed out the malfunction of the Security Council, when the permanent members exercised the veto, the reason was explained at the UN General Assembly.

Under these circumstances, when the permanent members of the Security Council exercised their veto rights, a resolution was submitted to the UN General Assembly to hold a UN General Assembly within 10 days and ask the permanent members to explain the reasons for exercising their veto rights. it was done.



The resolution was put together by Liechtenstein in Europe, and more than 80 countries including the permanent members of the United States, the United Kingdom and France, as well as Japan, have joined the co-sponsoring countries.



On the 26th, the UN General Assembly discussed the resolution, and since no country asked for a vote, the resolution was adopted as the consensus of the General Assembly, and the chamber gave a big applause.



On the other hand, in the resolution, it is left to the judgment of the permanent members whether or not to explain at the general meeting, and it is unclear how far the permanent members will stop the exercise of the veto right.



After the resolution was adopted, the Russian representative accused him of "attempting to put pressure on the permanent members and categorically refused", and the Chinese representative also denied that "it could be confusing and we do not know if we can achieve our goals." Shows a good posture.
