Modi’s key remarks in the UN General Assembly

Kiran Galla –
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the goals set by the United Nations (UN) have not yet been fully achieved. He said the company was already in a “credibility crisis” and needed to be reformed to meet today’s modern challenges. He made the remarks while virtually attending the 75th Annual Meeting of the United Nations General Assembly. India will join the Security Council (UNSC) as a temporary member from January. Will continue in that position for two years. On the other hand, it is well known that there has always been a demand for permanent membership of India. In this context, the latest remarks made by Modi at a key meeting came to prominence.

Modi believes that in today’s world of diversity, everyone should be given a chance to be heard. He said India was ready to work with all countries in this regard. The United Nations emerged 75 years ago at a time when the world was trembling with fears of war. Recall that for the first time ever an organization for the welfare of the world was established. But, it has been made clear that it is not possible to meet today’s modern challenges with the goals and systems of the day. He recalled that India had signed on as a founding member of the organization in support of the UN mission, which was inspired by the Indian ideology of the ‘settled family’. He praised the United Nations for making India better off today. He also paid tribute to the martyrs who worked for peace around the world on behalf of the organization.

Modi indirectly reflected the growing importance of India in the international arena. Attempts have been made to establish a basis for permanent membership in the Security Council. It is also known that opposition forces like China are obstructing India on many occasions with their veto power. Masood has repeatedly abused his veto power in identifying Azar as an international terrorist. The Economic Action Task Force (FATF) is also blocking the imposition of tough sanctions on Pakistan, which promotes terrorism. All this is irritating to India. In this context, India hopes that China will check the seduction by providing adequate representation at the United Nations. The permanent members of the Security Council, the United States, Britain, France, Russia and the United States, have already expressed their willingness to grant the status. Only China has objected.
