Ramaphosa also wants end to illegal occupation of Palestine.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa urged the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Tuesday to increase representation of African countries on the Security Council.

The US, Britain, France Russia and China are the Council's permanent members.
"On the 75th anniversary of the UN we repeat our call for greater representation of African countries on the Security Council, and that this be taken up with urgency at the Intergovernmental Negotiations," said Ramaphosa.
He demanded the UN spare no effort to end prejudice and intolerance in all forms across the world.

Ramaphosa also said his country further calls for the lifting of an economic embargo and blockade of Cuba. -
