As the world continues to reel under the impact of extreme weather events heightened by climate change, the issue is set to dominate the United National General Assembly (UNGA) in New York. The 77th session of the UNGA is underway in the United States and the high-level meetings will kick in from Monday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not attending the current session of the UNGA and External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar has been listed as the official speaker for India at the event. He arrived in New York on Sunday for the high-level session, with a packed diplomatic week ahead that will include more than 50 official engagements including bilateral, plurilateral, and multilateral meetings.
Counter-terrorism, peacekeeping, reformed multilateralism, climate action, and equitable access to COVID19 vaccines will be among the key focus areas for India during the high-level UN General Assembly session that begins this week here.
PM Modi addressed the session in 2021 during which he touched upon key issues such as Covid-19, vaccine manufacturing in India, and the rightful use of ocean resources among others.
