PM Narendra Modi Address to UN: Lauding India’s health care system in dealing with, and containing the spread of Covid-19, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday credited “grass-root health system” in helping the country “ensure one of the best recovery rates in the world.”

The PM said this in a virtual address to the United Nations at the High-Level Segment of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), his first since India was overwhelmingly elected as a non-permanent member of the powerful Security Council last month.

“In the fight against Covid, our grass-roots health system is helping India ensure one of the best recovery rates in the world. We are also on track to remove TB by 2025,” he said, adding, “be it earthquakes, cyclones, Ebola crisis or any other natural or man-made crisis, India has responded with speed and solidarity. In our joint fight against COVID, we have extended medical and other assistance to over 150 countries.”

“Our motto is ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas, Sabka Vishwas’ – meaning ‘Together, for everyone’s growth, with everyone’s trust’. This resonates with the core SDG principle of leaving no one behind,” he added.

Modi was delivering the keynote address at the High-Level Segment of the ECOSOC. The Prime Minister spoke at the valedictory session along with his Norwegian counterpart Erna Solberg and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

The theme of this year’s High-Level Segment is ‘Multilateralism after COVID19: What kind of UN do we need at the 75th anniversary’.

PM Modi to address UN at 8.30 pm. Catch LIVE updates here

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on 8.30 address the United Nations at the High-Level Segment of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), his first since India was overwhelmingly elected as a non-permanent member of the powerful Security Council last month.

India last month was overwhelmingly elected as a non-permanent member of the powerful UN Security Council on Wednesday for a two-year term. India, the endorsed candidate from the Asia-Pacific States, won 184 votes out of the 192 ballots cast in the elections for the five non-permanent seats of the Security Council.

The theme of this year’s High-Level Segment is ‘Multilateralism after COVID19: What kind of UN do we need at the 75th anniversary’. Held on an annual basis, the High-level Segment represents the culmination of the ECOSOC’s annual cycle of work and convenes a diverse group of high-level representatives from Government, the private sector, civil society and academia.

“Against the backdrop of a changing international environment and the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic, the session will focus on critical forces shaping the course of multilateralism and explore ways to bolster the multilateral agenda through strong multilateral leadership, effective international institutions, a broadening of participation and an enhanced focus on global public goods”, the Permanent Mission of India to the UN said in a statement.

This year’s theme also resonates with India’s priority for its Security Council tenure in which New Delhi has called for reformed multilateralism in a post-COVID-19 world.
