Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York and paid tribute to all those who lost their lives due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
PM Narendra Modi did not directly name Pakistan, but he said that nations using terrorism as a political tool need to realize that it is an equally big threat to them as well.
In his address, PM Narendra Modi also stated that India is a great example of a vibrant democracy, and the strength of India’s democracy can be seen by the fact that a little boy, who was helping his father at a tea stall, is addressing the UNGA for the fourth time as India’s Prime Minister.
PM Modi talked about terrorism and extremism and said that they are increasingly threatening the world. He added that in such a scenario, the whole world needs to make science-based rational and progressive thinking the basis of their development programs.
Furthermore, the prime minister made an indirect attack on China and said that resources that are available in the oceans are meant to be used instead of abused.
PM Modi referred to China’s expansion efforts in the South China Sea, which caused many regional disputes and said that the international community needs to protect the oceans from the race for expansionism and exclusion as they are the lifeline of international trade, and said that in order to have a rule-based world order, the world needs to raise a collective voice against such moves.
