The Japanese Mission to the United Nations on Thursday posted a clarification of Ambassador Tsuneo Nishida’s remarks on the upcoming Tokyo meeting on Security Council reform, claiming some reports were misleading.

It said that some press reports “misleadingly referred to” Nishida’s statement made Tuesday at the General Assembly debate on Security Council reform by quoting him as saying Tokyo will host a meeting on U.N. Security Council reform next Monday “as part of efforts to include Japan as a permanent member.”
