Emphasizing the need for an effective mechanism to address the global disparity of COVID-19 vaccines, India said there is a need for a vaccination campaign to prevent further changes in the nature of the virus and its ‘CoVin’ platform with the global community offered to share. The United Nations Security Council, chaired by France, discussed the resolution 2565 of the status of Kovid-19 in a closed room. India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador TS Tirumurti told that the Security Council discussed Kovid-19.
India’s technology platform ‘Covin’
India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador TS Tirumurti said on Twitter that in the Security Council discussion on Kovid-19, he said that vaccines are an effective mechanism to address global inequality and to prevent further changes in the nature of the virus. Vaccination campaign is needed. Facts should be used to clear misconceptions about vaccines, with India offering the Kovin platform. COVIN is India’s technology platform for anti-COVID vaccination.
Earlier this month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that CoVin is being developed as an open source tool so that it is available to all countries. In February, the Security Council adopted the Kovid-19 resolution. Nicolas de Rivire, France’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, said on Twitter that a year after the adoption of Resolution 2532, the Security Council met on the COVID situation.
India will take a holistic approach in August
Tirumurti said India will take a holistic approach to the UN Security Council during the Security Council presidency in August next month, taking special care of naval security, shared prosperity and other security interests. He said that naval security has always been of paramount importance in India’s foreign policy.
Commendation in counter-terrorism role
Prateek Mathur, Counselor in the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations in New York, said that the United Nations has played a very important role on a dangerous issue like terrorism. There have been efforts to avoid conflict and prevent terrorism through diplomatic means.
