Pakistan, Covid-19, Vaccines: Key points from PM Modi’s UNGA speech

India mother of democracy: I represent the mother of democracy, where there are dozens of languages, hundreds of dialects, and different lifestyles and cuisines. This is a shining example of a vibrant democracy. 

Rubbing Pakistan’s nose: …Countries with regressive thinking that are using terrorism as a political tool need to understand that terrorism is an equally big threat for them. It has to be ensured that Afghanistan isn’t used to spread terrorism or launch terror attacks… 

Covid-19 vaccine in India:  India has developed the world’s first DNA vaccine which can be administered to anyone above the age of 12. An mRNA vaccine is in the final stages of development. Indian scientists are also developing a nasal vaccine against Covid-19. 

Invitation to vaccine manufacturers:  PM Modi asked manufacturers across the world to make vaccines in India and also highlighted that India has resumed vaccine export. “While understanding the responsibility towards humanity, India has yet again started giving vaccines to those who need it.” 

Ocean resources: Our oceans are also the lifeline of international trade. We must protect them from the race for expansion. The international community must speak in one voice to strengthen a rule-based world order. 

The theme for this year’s General Debate was ‘Building Resilience through hope to recover from Covid-19, rebuild sustainably, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people, and revitalise the United Nations.’
