Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturday pushed for reforms in the global body. “Till when do we have to wait? Till when will India be kept away from the UN’s decision-making process?” PM said.
PM Modi reminded the UN that 130 crore Indians still believed in its ideals, but said the global body needed to adapt and change to stay relevant in current times. “Reform is needed at the United Nations and India is waiting for that reform,” the Prime Minister said.
The Security Council is the UN’s highest-decision making forum. There are five permanent members – the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Russia and France.
