“We should create a world where every living thing feels secure, gets opportunities and respect. We should leave for our future generations a climate in a better condition. There can be no better objective. But this is also true that nothing is more challenging than this,” Modi said.
“Today, in the 70th year of the existence of the UN, there are expectations from all of us that through our wisdom, experience, generosity and expertise, we will overcome these challenges,” he said.
PM Modi pitched for reform of the UN Security Council, saying it was essential for the world body to inspire confidence and be relevant in the current world realities.
“Seventy years back, when the horrific second World War came to an end, this organization came into being, raising hopes of people around the world. We have gathered here to decide a new direction,” he said, addressing the UN General Assembly session.
Talking about global challenges and problems, Modi said, “We need UN reforms so that it inspires confidence and becomes relevant to the current world realities.”
His pitch for UNSC reforms comes amid India’s strong bid for a permanent seat in the expanded powerful world body.
