Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday he supports India's quest for a permanent seat at an expanded United Nations Security Council.

India has long sought a permanent seat at the UN Security Council, a bid which has been endorsed by the United States and France. China has only given a lukewarm response. Medvedev was speaking, alongside Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, during a news conference at the start of a two-day visit to India.
