PM Modi to address UNGA on September 25

New Delhi, September 12

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the UN General Assembly on September 25, according to the revised provisional list of speakers released by the UN.

There were attempts to shift PM Modi’s address to Friday when the Pakistan PM Imran Khan is also slated to speak. US President Joe Biden will deliver his UNGA address on September 21.

PM Modi could also participate in the first in-person Quadrilateral Summit with Biden, Japanese PM Yoshihide Suga and Australian PM Scott Morrison. Suga and Morrison are also slated to speak at the UNGA which means they will be in New York during the high level segment of the UNGA.

Besides bilaterals with the three Quad leaders, including one currently being scheduled with Biden, PM Modi could also hold a roundtable with American CEOs.

PM Modi had attended the UNGA in 2019 and had also addressed the ‘Howdy Modi’ rally with then US President Donald Trump.
