New York: Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will deliver a Keynote address virtually via video at Valedictory of High-Level Segment of United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC) on 17th July morning in New York, on eve of 75th anniversary of United Nations.

On June 17, India was elected unopposed to secure a comfortable victory in the United Nations Security Council elections to join the powerful 15-nation body as a non-permanent member for the 2021-22 term.

With 184 votes out of the total 192 polled, India which won the UN non-permanent seat for the eighth time has emerged as the single-endorsed candidate from the Asian Pacific regional group, amid the larger push for the country to be made a permanent member of the five-nation apex grouping, currently comprising the US, UK, Russia, China, and France.

The UNSC comprises 15 members including 10 non-permanent and 5 permanent members.

The 193-member UNSC holds elections every year to elect five non-permanent members for a two-year term at the UN.
