Addressing the 75th session of the UN General Assembly, US President Donald Trump said that 75 years after the end of World War II and the founding of the United Nations, we are once again in a global conflict.
We have waged a fight against an invisible enemy Chinese virus. It has taken countless lives in 188 countries. In the US, we started the most aggressive mobilization since the Second World War. We rapidly supplied record ventilators. Being a surplus ventilator, we were able to distribute it to our friends around the world.
Targeting China, he said that the way we are moving towards a golden future, we should hold China responsible for spreading such epidemics across the world. In the early days of the virus, China had banned domestic travel. But flights to other countries were continued to infect the world.
The Chinese government and the WHO (which runs China behind the scenes) falsely claim that there is no evidence that the virus spreads from person to person. He later falsely claimed that patients without symptoms could not spread the disease.
Heads will address virtually
This is the first time in the history of the United Nations that the UN heads of state nations are to address this session virtually. Therefore, its importance has increased significantly. Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi will address this General Assembly on 26 September.
At the same time, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will address this session on 25 September. Therefore, India will also have a chance to answer every question and every allegation raised by Pakistan.
Demand to increase the number of permanent and temporary members of UNSC
It may be noted that Brazil, Germany, and Japan including India have been demanding for increasing the number of permanent and temporary members of the UNSC.
India says that increasing the number of members on the UN Security Council should reflect the changing global order in the UN. This issue of reform has been continuously being raised since 2008. This time too, these things can be clearly seen in PM Modi’s address.
