The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday welcomed US President Barack Obama endorsing India's bid for a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council.

"It was a powerful endorsement. It is very welcome. Very eloquently put," BJP leader Jaswant Singh told reporters.

Singh, a former external affairs minister, was reacting to Obama's address to members of the Parliament in which he welcomed India's bid for a permanent seat in the UNSC.

"In the years ahead, I look forward to a reformed UN Security Council that includes India as a permanent member," Obama said.
