New Delhi: It is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's big push ahead of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. India will play host to the group of four nations - G4 - which also includes Germany, Japan and Brazil. All four countries are pushing for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council.

Prime Minister Modi will host among others, his close friend Shinzo Abe of Japan, Angela Merkel of Germany and Dilma Rouseff of Brazil. The summit will happen at the Waldorf Astoria hotel where Modi is staying, at 8 am on Saturday morning.

Prime Minister Abe is flying in only for this summit as he will not be addressing the UNGA in 2015, just like Modi.

This summit is usually held at the Foreign Minister level. But this year India decided to upgrade it to heads of government.

This is coming on the back of huge success for India last week when the UNGA adopted the text which will form the basis for all future Security Council expansion. But in this backdrop, as emerging powers stake their claim to the global high-table, the established powers are not too enthused.

China has traditionally opposed both India and Japan's bid for a permanent seat. Italy and France have been opposed to Germany's bid and Argentina has played spoiler to Brazil. The US too after publicly backing India for a permanent seat has been waffling off late.
