The five member nations are long friends and allies and there’s a trust built on a long shared history. There hasn’t been a conflict between any of these nations for generations.

Expanding it will need to be a tactful affair. The trust these nations share is not easily earned.

If the trust is expanded and membership increased, there is the benefit that it builds some leverage against other nations who will definitely be not invited.
