US Ambassador in India David Mulford said that the United States is concerned more about bringing in meaningful total reforms in the United Nations , rather than only focusing on the permanent membership issue .
Ambassador Mulford while addressing a press conference on internet faced with the question why the US was opposing India’s bid to become a permanent member in the United Nations Security Council. He was also asked whether an Indian candidate for the UN Secretary General Shashi Tharu is likely to receive US support. But the ambassador did not answer this question.
The US Ambassador , however , expressed his hope that the Civil Nuclear Treaty between India and USA will be eventually endorsed by the the US Congress
