UNITED NATIONS: With 187 votes in its bag, India has received the highest number of votes for getting into the United Nations Security Council in the past five years, according to Indian diplomat.

Hardeep Singh Puri, India's envoy to the UN, described this as a "ringing endorsement."

"This is the highest vote that any country has got in the last five years," he told PTI. "Now that's saying a lot."

Out of the 190 countries that voted, India received 187 votes.

After the vote in the General Assembly last morning, the diplomats of the Indian mission to the UN celebrated by openning a couple of bottles of champagne and serving a lunch of spicy Chinese food.

India, which is a founding member of the UN is returning to the Security Council after a gap of 19 years.

It has been on the Council six times before--having last served in 1992.
