© Provided by Zee News

New York (US): In a few hours from now today (September 25), Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Pressing global challenges – the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to combat terrorism, climate change – are some of the issues the prime minister is likely to focus on during the address. The theme for this year’s General Debate is ‘Building Resilience through hope to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainably, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people, and revitalise the United Nations.’

“Landed in New York City. Will be addressing the UNGA at 6:30 PM (IST) on the 25th,” PM Modi tweeted soon after he landed in New York.

The high-level segment of the 76th UNGA began in New York on Tuesday (September 21). The UNGA meeting this year is in a hybrid format but a large number of leaders have arrived in New York. Prime Minister Modi will speak on various important issues including cross-border terrorism, regional situation and United Nations Security Council (UNSC) reforms, Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla had said earlier.

Regarding India’s permanent membership at the UNSC, Shringla said PM Modi will lay emphasis upon the UNSC reforms during his address.”India`s Amrit Mahotsav and the 75th-anniversary of the UN are coinciding. And on this occasion, Prime Minister Modi during his address will definitely speak on UN reforms, about why it is needed and how it can be achieved,” he said.

Modi had arrived in Washington on Wednesday for a three-day visit to the country on Wednesday (September 22), his first beyond neighbourhood since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Prime Minister held bilateral meetings with US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris here. He also met his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison and Japanese PM Yoshihide Suga. PM Modi also participated in the first in-person Quad Summit in Washington after COVID-19. He also held meetings with five global CEOs for potential investment in India on Thursday (September 23).
