On May 10, Vice President M.Venkaiah Naidu has said serious thing over growing disconnect in the present world that is highly ‘inter-connected’ like never before and called for build up the cumulative global effort to address basic issues like poverty and inequality. He alleges that India is seeking a new world order and action based on the country’s archaic wisdom and values that advocated congenial existence and a common good. He outlined India’s vision for resolving current global challenges while speaking to the Ambassadors of different countries and students in Panama City
Naidu noted that technological and scientific advances and enlargement of ability have thrown up new challenges like cyber security, terrorism, nuclear and chemical warfare etc, threatening human existence. Elaborating further on new issues seeking solutions, he said
“Corruption, discrimination, exploitation, violence and violation of basic human rights continue to erode social fabric across the world. These evils and awareness of exploitation and failure of established governance organisations lead to suspicion, anger, rebellion and extremism. The sooner we effectively address these concerns, the better will be our collective feature”.
Naidu quotes from ‘Prithvi Suktam’ which said “May out interactions among ourselves and Mother Earth be harmonious” and also referred that Vedas to highlight the message “Let peace flow over the whole universe”.
“In the world order we want, the power and authorities are shared, assessments and voices are respected and wealth and earth’s assets are shared”.
Naidu underlined that no country or group of countries should influence or control global decision making and this allowed immediate reform of the United Nations system to ensure ideal decision making on major global issues.
Naidu said, “India trying to the balanced pursuit of national interests while also upholding the broader duties and values mandated by our membership of the comity of nations which shall form the core of the new and reformed World Order we all must establish”.
Ambassadors of about 40 countries to Panama later interacted with Naidu and appreciated the major initiatives and their implementation by the central government and the fast-growing Indian economics.
Later in the day, Naidu arrived in the Peruvian capital of Lima after visiting Guatemala and Panama for two days each.
