Tehran, Aug.28 (ANI): Intervening during an interactive debate on 'Lasting Peace through Joint Global Governance' at a preparatory ministerial meeting here on Tuesday, Krishna called on NAM member states to play a more active and advocacy role in achieving universal nuclear disarmament and a world free of all nuclear weapons.
The apparent failings of the present global governance architecture have further constrained our ability to respond to global challenges. The time has come for the developed and the developing countries to work together on the basis of universally recognized norms of international law and multilateral decision making to deal with the challenges and the opportunities before the world today, Krishna said.
We need approaches which are inclusive, transparent and firmly anchored in multi-lateralism to navigate these challenges. It is our considered view that the United Nations stands best placed to play a central role in this regard. We need to redouble our efforts towards a more democratic, equitable, and legitimized international architecture that reflects contemporary realities, Krishna added.
He said that India remains convinced that until comprehensive reform of the UN Security Council is undertaken, the overall reform of the United Nations can only be regarded as piecemeal and incomplete. (ANI)
