PM Modi to address high-level meeting to mark 75th anniversary of UN and General Debate next week

@PMOIndia
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the high-level meeting to mark the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and the General Debate next week.

The annual session of the UN General Assembly begins in NewYork on September 21 with the high-level meeting to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations.

To mark the historic occasion, the 193 UN member states will adopt a forward-looking political declaration, negotiated through an intergovernmental process, on the theme of 'The future we want, the United Nations we need: reaffirming our collective commitment to multilateralism.'

Prime  Minister Modi will address this special event through a pre-recorded video statement. The General Debate will commence on September 22 and will continue till September 29.

PM Modi will also deliver the national statement on September 26 through a pre-recorded video statement. The vision Prime Minister Modi outlines at these two high-level meetings will be closely watched as it comes ahead of India taking a seat at the powerful UN Security Council as an elected non-permanent member for a two-year term beginning January 1, 2021.

Last year, Prime Minister Modi travelled to New York to attend the high-level annual General Assembly session after addressing a mega diaspora event 'Howdy, Modi!' held on September 22.

This year, for the first time in the UN's 75-year history, Heads of State and Government will not be arriving in New York for the General Assembly due to the COVID-19 pandemic and have submitted pre-recorded video statements that will be played in the iconic General Assembly hall.
