India and Germany Tuesday called for reforms in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to reflect the changing world realities and power equations.

"The reform of UNSC is very necessary and it is good that Germany and India can work on that. We are seeing how we can align our policies to bring the reforms. The current UNSC does not reflect realities. We should focus our energies on speeding up the reform process," visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel said during her talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Singh said that UNSC still represented the world of 1945 and needs to be reformed.

The two leaders also agreed to jointly tackle terrorism and find a solution to the Afghanistan problem with Merkel admitting that the challenges being faced in Afghanistan were "serious".
