India’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ruchira Kamboj, recently said that India is ready to take its place at the global top tables including G-20 and the UN Security Council presidency as the country is willing to bring solutions to the table.
During a press briefing earlier, when asked about UNSC reforms and India’s permanent seat at the security council, Kamboj said, “India is ready to take its place at the global top tables as a country that is willing to bring solutions to the table. One of the central tenets of our foreign policy is human-centric and which will remain the same.”
Ambassador Kamboj told reporters that even as the world grapples with a pandemic and multilateralism is under stress, India has emerged as a rallying point of hope on the international stage.
“In the last 2 years when the world was going through a crisis, India has always been there as a solution provider. Like during COVID and more such matters, India is already ready to take its place at the global top table,” she added.
