Similarly, respect for territorial integrity and non-interference in internal affairs cannot be exercises in cherry picking. When reality departs from rhetoric, we must have the courage to call it out. Without genuine solidarity there can never be real , trust. This is very much the sentiment of the Global South,’’ said Jaishankar in his address at the annual UN General Assembly session in New York. His remarks were also seen in the context of cross-border terrorism from Pakistan and the stand-off with China in the Ladakh area. “We often advocate the promotion of a rules-based order. From time to time, respect for Foreign Minister S Jaishankar addresses the UN General Assembly | AP the UN Charter is also invoked. But for all the talk, it is still a few nations who shape the agenda and seek to define the norms. This cannot go on indefinitely Nor will it go unchal. lenged,’’ said Jaishankar. The minister began his address with a Bharat pitch - ‘Namaste from Bharat’ - just as the name board before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s seat at the recent G20 summit at Delhi said Bharat. While concluding his 17-minute address, he again invoked Bharat. Prodding the UN to reform its Security Council, he recalled India’s initiative at the G20 meet to admit the African Union as its permanent member. “By doing so, we gave voice to an entire continent which has long been its due. This significant step in reform should inspire the United Nations, a much older organisation, to also make the Security Council contemporary. Broad representative is after all, a pre-requisite for both effectiveness and credibility,’’ Jaishankar said. Hailing the G20 Summit as successful, Jaishankar said the country began its G20 Presidency with the Voice of the Global South Summit. It enabled India to hear directly from 125 nations and place their concerns on the G20 agenda. “At a time when East-West polarisation is so sharp and North-South divide so deep, the New Delhi G20 Summit affirmed that diplomacy and dialogue are the only effective solutions. The inter national order is diverse and we must cater for divergences, if not differences. The days when a few nations set the agenda and expected others to fall in line are over,’’ the minister said.
