India highlights the importance of a just world order at the UN.

India’s Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, who addressed the United Nations Assembly in New York, emphasized the need to establish a democratic and fair political system.

“A democratic, just and equitable order will have to emerge. This implies ensuring that those who formulate the rules do not subjugate those who are the object of their application,” said the Indian diplomat.

The global agenda is not only decided by some nations

During his speech, Minister Jaishankar stated that the days of only a few nations setting the global agenda, and waiting for others to fall in line, are over.

Likewise, Jaishankar highlighted the importance of global inclusion and recalled India’s role in the incorporation of the African Union as a permanent member of the G20, a step that, according to him, gave «a voice to an entire continent.»
