The announcement comes as India prepares to wrap up its current non-permanent membership for 2021-22 on 31 December 2022. This membership at the security council is not a first for India, with the nation serving as a member of the Security Council in 1950-1951, 1967-1968, 1972-1973, 1977-1978, 1984-1985, 1991-1992, and 2011-2012.

“During this eighth inning of ours, we have attempted to bring many themes of contemporary relevance like maritime security, technology in UN peacekeeping, reforms of the UN, and counterterrorism to the center of the agenda and of the debate in the UN,” said Jaishankar at the UN Security Council stakeout.

“We have tried to not only articulate their interests and anxieties but also tried to see whether we could serve as a bridging role in the Council. It’s been a pleasure working with them,” he continued, thanking his fellow members.
