Senegal has called for reforms within the United Nations Security Council to enable Africa obtain a permanent seat, according to local reports.

"It is urgent to review this injustice against Africa by allocating it a permanent seat in the UN Security Council with all the prerogatives that go with it," said Djibo Leity Ka, Senegalese Environment Minister, during celebrations Wednesday to mark the 62th UN anniversary.

The world is faced with "unique challenges which calls for reforms within the UN," he said.

Among the challenges facing Africa are those related to terrorism, increasing drug trafficking and climatic changes, the minister said adding that world peace and security must be closely monitored at all times.

The minister's appeal was supported by the United Nations Development Program representative in Senegal Bouri Jean Victor Sanhouidi, who expressed regret that Africa has yet to get a permanent UN security council seat in 2007.

Sanhouidi advised African states to find a consensus aimed at ensuring the continent is allocated a permanent seat at the UN security council.
