Stressing that tensions in any region have affected all countries, especially developing nations, in an interconnected world, Modi also called for respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries and jointly oppose any attempt to unilaterally change the status quo everywhere.
Again advocating for reforms of the United Nations Security Council, Modi sought to know why the United Nations has failed to prevent conflicts and why it has so far failed to even come up with a definition of terrorism. “If we do an introspection, we will find that the institutions of the last century are not suited to the arrangements of the 21st century. They do not reflect the current reality,” he said she.
“That is why it is important that reforms are carried out in institutions such as the UN. They will have to speak for the Global South. Otherwise, we will continue to argue for years about how to end our struggle. The UN and the Security Council will be reduced to a mere chatterbox,” she added.

Modi reiterated his pledge to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy that India would do everything possible to end the war and said dialogue and diplomacy were the only way out of the current situation. Modi said India has always maintained that any conflict should be resolved peacefully and through dialogue.
“If there is a way out by following the law, we must follow it. This is how India settled its land and sea border disputes with Bangladesh,” Modi said quoting Buddha to say that fighting enmity with enmity cannot lead to peace.
