External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar addressed the 78th United Nations General Assembly. Addressing the UNGA on Tuesday (September 26, 2023), he said that India successfully chaired the G-20 at a time of global tension and led important changes. The results of G-20 are important for the whole world. Due to the efforts of India, the African Union has become its permanent member. During this, he said that India has now come out of non-alignment and is playing a positive role for the whole world in the role of a world friend.

India hosted G-20 brilliantly

During his address S. Jaishankar said India began its presidency of the G-20 by convening the Voice of the Global South Summit, recognizing that growth and development must focus on the most vulnerable. He said that the world is witnessing a period of extraordinary turmoil. He said that India assumed the chairmanship of G-20 with a sense of extraordinary responsibility. We adopted the approach of ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’, due to which we emerged from the narrow interests of some countries.

Expansion in the United Nations Security Council will benefit him

India’s Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar addressed his address with “Namaste from India!” And reiterated the demand for the expansion of the United Nations Security Council. He said that under the leadership of India, we included the African Union in the G-20 and now the time has come for the expansion of the United Nations Security Council, so that it can remain relevant.

Recognition of world friend by non-alignment

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said India has moved out of the era of non-alignment and into the “era of Vishwa Mitra” or the era of friends of the world. India wants to promote cooperation with all its partners. We have now transformed ourselves beyond the era of non-alignment into a ‘Vishwa Mitra – A Friend to the World’.
