Pointing towards the needs of a “changing world” in the global interest, Modi called for a reformation in the UNSC. He said that a member country from South Pacific region in the expanded UNSC could support the vision of Pacific Regionalism. He also expressed India’s dedication in helping small nations achieve sustainable development goals.

Elaborating the climate change issue, PM Modi spoke about the threat to existence for Pacific Islands and the number of Indians residing around the 7500 km long shoreline. The leaders from the 14 Pacific Islands too demanded India’s support at the 21st session of the Climate Change Conference for a justified agreement on the protection of island nations.
