The topic of the digital UNSC debate will be 'Enhancing Maritime Security - A Case for the Maintenance of International Peace and Security'. This information has been given by the Prime Minister's Office. In a statement issued by the PMO, it has been said that the heads of states and governments of UNAC member countries are likely to participate in this debate.
UN officials and major regional organizations are also likely to participate in this debate. In a statement issued by the PMO, it has been said that Narendra Modi will be the first Prime Minister of India to chair this meeting of the United Nations Security Council.
Issues of enhancing cooperation in the field of maritime crime and maritime security will be discussed in this debate. In fact, on behalf of the UNSC, issues of maritime security and maritime crime have been discussed and many resolutions have been passed.
However, this will be the first time that a high-level and open debate will be held on a serious issue like maritime security. The PMO says that maritime security is a serious issue, so a comprehensive discussion on it at the UNSC is important.
There needs to be a comprehensive approach to this so that legitimate maritime activities can be protected. It is known that India is a non-permanent member of the Security Council for two years and it is presiding over the UNSC for the month of August this year. This is considered a great achievement.
