India at the UN Emphasize the Success of General Assembly for the success of Multilateralism

According to Minister in India’s Permanent Mission to the UN Deepak Misra as the globe faces difficulties relating to sustainable development, security, migration, health, and climate change, the viability of multilateralism is largely dependent on the success of the General Assembly.  

Any institution’s efficacy, relevance, and long-term viability are determined by its dynamic nature and willingness to adapt to changing circumstances so that it not only upholds time-tested values but also addresses contemporary difficulties. The world’s concerns of sustainable development, security, migration, health, and climate change, among others, cannot be tackled in isolation. 

India has long believed that the General Assembly can only be revitalized if its role as the UN’s primary deliberative, policy-making, and representational instrument is honored in both text and spirit. 

The General Assembly’s revitalization must be viewed from the perspective of the United Nations’ overall overhaul. 

Minister Deepak Misra said he used the occasion to reaffirm India’s support for Algeria’s declaration on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement. 

He also stated that some members have begun to believe that the General Assembly has lost touch with its core responsibilities and has gotten swamped with processes over time. 

It is necessary to acknowledge that the General Assembly and its member states share some of the blame for allowing its relevance to be diluted despite being the collective voice of the nations. This will undoubtedly jeopardize the UN’s overall efficacy and relevance.
