PM Narendra Modi to address UN General Assembly today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will deliver a virtual speech in the United Nations General Assembly in the 75th session on Saturday as the event is being held virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic. PM Modi is scheduled as the first speaker and his speech will be aired at 6.30pm IST.

Reports said PM Modi’s speech is likely to focus on the strengthening of global action to counter-terrorism. The PM will highlight the issues of cross-border terrorism and urge global leaders to take stringent action. India will push for more transparency in the process of listing and de-listing of terror outfits and individuals by the UN sanction committees, reports said.

United Nations Security Council

Since India is about to become a non-permanent member of UNSC for the next two years, Modi is likely to put his “5-S approach” of samman (respect), samvad (dialogue), sahyog (cooperation), shanti (peace) and samriddhi (prosperity).

The theme of the 75th UNGA is “the future we want, the United Nations we need, reaffirming our collective commitment to multilateralism – confronting Covid-19 through effective multilateral action”.

Reports said India will also prioritise climate change and active engagement on sustainable development. India will also highlight its role as a “pharmacy to the world” by elaborating its contribution to the global cooperation against the pandemic by aiding more than 150 countries. Being one of the largest troops contributing nations to the UN, India will also seek to engage intensively in finalising of mandates for the UN peacekeeping mission. India’s priorities will be to ensure responsible and inclusive solutions for international peace and security, effective response to international terrorism, new orientation for a reformed multilateral system, technology for all and streamlining of UN peacekeeping.
