Reaffirming India’s commitment to the United Nations, he underlined that India looks forward to working with all other nations to reform and revitalize the United Nations during its term at the UN Security Council from 2021-22.
"75 years ago on this day, the @UN came into being with an unrivalled reach & an unequivocal legitimacy. India’s vision of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’- which sees all creation as one family, also took a global manifestation," Mr Muraleedharan said at the virtual #UN75 commemoration.
India has been actively contributing to the work of the United Nations. Be it Hansa Mehta’s seminal contribution to recognize, in the #UDHR that ‘all human beings’ rather than ‘all men are created equal’, or the 200000 personnel provided to UN Peacekeeping missions," he said.
"Without comprehensive reforms, the #UN75 faces a crisis of confidence. For today’s inter-connected world, we need a reformed multilateralism- that reflects today’s realities. #UNDay2020," he added.
