There were times when India “had to stand alone” during its tenure as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2021–2022, but it did not compromise the values it holds sacred, according to the representative of New Delhi here.
On December 1, India assumed the UN Security Council’s (UNSC) monthly rotating presidency for the second time during its two-year term as an elected member of the Council in 2021–2022. In August 2021, India had previously assumed the UNSC presidency.
Ms. Kamboj emphasised the “packed” strategy of the Council for the month under India’s presidency, as well as the signature activities on revived multilateralism and counterterrorism, presided over by External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar last week in a roll briefing for non-members of the Security Council on its task for the month of December before the vacation week.
