Don’t use Afghanistan to stage terror attacks: PM Modi warns Pakistan in UNGA speech

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the territory of Afghanistan should not be used to promote terrorism in an oblique reference to Pakistan in his speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday.

The prime minister said no country should be allowed to take undue advantage of the delicate situation in the Taliban-ruled country. Modi said the people of Afghanistan, especially its women, children and the minorities, need help and assistance and called upon the world community to fulfil its duty towards them.

The PM also spoke of climate-friendly measures India was taking to safeguard the resources for future generations. In this aspect, he said there is an increased threat of regressive thinking and extremism.

He advocated science-based, rational and progressive thinking for ensuring development for which India is promoting experience-based learning.

Before addressing world leaders, PM Modi paid his respects to the lives lost in the pandemic and said the world has been dealing with the worst pandemic in over a 100 years.

He said the world was staring at a water crisis and India was working to provide clean water by pipe to 170 million households.

The PM added that India’s democracy is the mother of all democracies and credited democracy for allowing a boy who helped his father sell to address the UN for the fourth time. “Our diversity and plurality is an example of a vibrant democracy,” PM Modi continued.

PM Modi lauded the Indian health workers for their continuous effort in the ongoing vaccination drive. He said CoWin , the vaccine delivery platform in India, is offering digital support to administer crores of doses a day, which was a record 20 million or 2 crore doses on his 71st birthday.

PM Modi said that India has developed a DNA vaccine for children between 12-18 years and are in the process of developing MRNA vaccine. India has also developed a nasal vaccine, he said. PM Modi invited people from all over the world to come to India for vaccination.
