I believe Swiss President in agreement with Iran’s President on this issue. Well, in fact, who does not agree with the Iranian President on this issue?

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has vehemently criticized the United Nations Security Council, saying the 15-member body has monopolized the UN’s power.
“The members of this council (the UN Security Council) have monopolized the entire power of the United Nations,” President Ahmadinejad said in a press conference after addressing the 67th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Wednesday.
He added that the UN is the organization of nations and all members should enjoy equal rights.
The president emphasized that the existence of discriminatory moves in the United Nations is the cause of many global woes, stating that all UN members should take part in the decision-making process of the world body “freely, without pressure and each with one vote.”
Ahmadinejad said that two permanent members of the UN Security Council are currently imposing their will on all members of the United Nations. He added that in all clashes across the world, one side of the conflict is one of these two Security Council members.
These have led to the Security Council’s failure to fulfill its duties, he pointed out.
Ahmadinejad added that certain permanent members of the Security Council are after more exclusive privileges and noted that they are preventing the body from carrying out its duties by exerting pressure.
Now, the Security Council is at an impasse and is unable to maintain international security, he stated.
