United Nations Faces “Crisis Of Confidence,” Says PM Modi In UNGA Address
Indian PM gave virtual opening speech at ongoing 75th UNGA.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the United Nations faces a “crisis of confidence” without comprehensive reforms during his virtual address at the High-Level meeting commemorating the 75th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). This year’s assembly is being largely held virtually, even as many world leaders have avoided travelling across to New York amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Heads of State and Government and Ministers have sent in pre-recorded video statements for the UNGA.
Calling for reforms in the United Nations, PM Modi said, “We cannot fight today’s challenges with outdated structures. Without comprehensive reforms, the UN faces a crisis of confidence.” He added, “For today’s interconnected world, we need a reformed multilateralism that reflects today’s realities, gives voice to all stakeholders, addresses contemporary challenges and focuses on human welfare.” He also said that India looks forward to working with other nations in achieving this goal in the coming future.
