Slovenia supports Brazil's entry as a permanent member of a reformed UN Security Council, said a joint statement issued by Brazil's Foreign Ministry on Wednesday.

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva met with his Slovenian counterpart Danilo Turk on Wednesday, according to the joint statement.

"Both presidents agreed on the need to reform the United Nations system, in particular the Security Council, in order to give it more transparency and legitimacy and to reflect the changes occurred in the international order in the last half century," said the statement.

"President Danilo Turk expressed support of Slovenia to Brazil as a permanent member of a reformed Security Council," it added.

It is the first visit by a Slovenian head of state to Brazil.

Among the top candidates for permanent seats are Germany, Japan, India, Brazil and an undetermined African state.
