Topic Description:

India's Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador TS Tirumurti, on Monday speaking in the UN General Assembly on 'Question of equitable representation on and increase in the membership of the Security Council', said that nothing has moved for more than a decade in the Inter-Governmental Negotiations except hearing passionate statements on the need for reform. Criticising the absence of even a single negotiating text, Tirumurti said that the IGN has become like a "platform for debate in a University rather than a serious result-oriented process in the United Nations consisting of sovereign member states". Meanwhile, addressing a virtual summit of the BRICS grouping, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated India's long-standing demand of reformed multilateralism. Calling the theme ‘Global Stability, Shared Security and Innovative Growth’ not only relevant but also far sighted, PM Modi said questions are being raised on the credibility of the global institutions. He emphasised on reform of institutions like the UN, IMF, WTO and WHO to gain credibility.
