India’s multilateral vision was reiterated in its enthusiastic participation in the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Over the years, India’s commitment to multilateralism has not wavered, spanning a broad spectrum of support – including UN Peacekeeping, climate change, human rights and sustainable development.
India and the UN have deeply influenced each other. Each was born from a struggle, one created from the sacrifices of a non-violent freedom movement , and the other from the ruins of a destructive war. The overriding concerns of the two are the same and universal – the rejection of discrimination, injustice and aggression.
