The European Union encompasses a solid number of nations across the continent of Europe. By providing the European Union with a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council, the smaller nations that joined the Union to pool resources and create stronger economic ties with neighboring European neighbors will have their voices hear, provided there can be cohesion between the Union members so that the Security Council representative can echo the sentiments of all the EU members.
The European Union represents a large portion of the industrialized world. The United States is on reasonably friendly terms with these nations. I feel that giving the European Union a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council would be beneficial to this country. It would represent another voice of reason on a council that currently has far too many members who we don't have great relations with.
I think that the EU should be givena permanent seat on the UN security Council. I think that they have every right to be able to voice their opinions to the United Nations despite being a collection of different European Countries. I think that they should be given a chance to be part of the UN.
The EU is not a country, It is not a functioning state recognised by any country as a country it is a region & collective. Does the Commonwealth get a seat too? Lets face it there are far more people in the commonwealth than the EU. If it became a country France would cease to be one.
The European Union should not have a permanent seat simply because it is not a country. It does not represent the views of all its members and certainly shouldn't have a seat after its persistent war mongering with a certain big Russian bear. All members of the EU are members of the UN and can represent their own views on UN affairs.
No the European Union (EU) should not be given a permanent seat on the United Nations (UN) Security Council. The basic reason is the fact the EU is not a member of the UN and is not eligible for membership in the UN. The is a union of the 28 member countries for economic and political benefits.
It does not make sense for the EU to be given a permanent UN seat, because the UN is comprised of member countries, not member organizations. The two are totally different entitites, and members of the EU are already seated on the security council. There interests are sufficiently represented currently.
