PM Addresses UN in English

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi gave his pitch to world leaders for a permanent UN Security Council seat for Japan in very passable English. Koizumi addressed the United Nations General Assembly and said that a seat on the council was just reward for Tokyo's contributions to global peace and security. "We believe that the role Japan has played provides a solid basis for its assumption of permanent membership of the Security Council," he said. "Countries with the will and resources to play a major role in international peace and security must always take part in the council's decision-making process."
