Japan has decided to co-sponsor a resolution proposed by Liechtenstein to seek accountability of veto-wielding countries in the U.N. Security Council after Russia exercised the right to block a motion against its invasion of Ukraine, the government said Thursday.
The resolution, which mandates a U.N. General Assembly meeting whenever a veto is cast in the Security Council, has gained support from dozens of nations including the United States, Japan’s ally and a permanent member of the council. Other permanent members are Britain, China and France.
