PM Modi UNGA Speech 2020

New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi's virtual address to the UN General Assembly on September 26 will be focused on global effort against the terrorism, said a media report.

Amid coronavirus pandemic most of the events are being conducted digitally and PM Modi's UNGA speech is no different; he will be making a video statement broadcast at the General Assembly hall in New York. PM Modi has been listed as the first speaker for the general debate in the forenoon of Saturday.

Among India's priorities during the 75th session of the General Assembly, the focus was on terrorism and ways to counter it with a global effort, the same tunes are likely to be heard in PM Modi's today's speech.

“India will push for more transparency in the process of listing and delisting of entities and individuals by the UN sanction committees,” Hindustan Times quoted one of the people close to the matter.

The prime minister is also expected to focus on the issues India will focus on during its stint as a non-permanent member of the Security Council for two years beginning January 1, 2021. This includes the “5-S approach” of samman (respect), samvad (dialogue), sahyog (cooperation), shanti (peace) and samriddhi (prosperity), the people said.
