Reformed Multilateral System to be India’s approach at UNSC, says EAM Jaishankar
As a single endorsed candidate of the Asia-Pacific Group, India’s candidature is very likely to succeed. This would be the nation’s eighth term in the UN Security Council which will begin from January next year.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Jaishankar referred to the international context that the Security Council will confront, with regard to both new and continuing traditional challenges to international peace and security. He said , the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has further contributed to a more complex international economic and political environment, including by limiting the capacity of States to respond to local, regional and global challenges. External Affairs Minister emphasized India’s long-standing role as a voice of moderation, an advocate of dialogue and a proponent of international law.
New opportunities for progress, an effective response to international terrorism, reforming the multilateral system, comprehensive approach to international peace and security and promoting technology with a human touch as a driver of solutions have been underlined as the key priorities for the country in its stance at the UN Security Council.
