UNGA's position should be respected: India
UNGA's position should be respected: India
Clean Media Correspondent 
United Nations: Mar 30: (CMC)  Extending support to efforts to strengthen the role of the UN General Assembly, India has said revitalisation of the 193-member body is possible only when its position as the chief deliberative and policy-making organ of the UN is respected in "letter and spirit". 
The General Assembly should take the lead in setting the global agenda and restoring the centrality of the United Nations in formulating multilateral approaches to resolving transnational issues, India's Permanent Representative to the UN Hardeep Singh Puri said at a session on UNGA revitalisation here. 

India will offer its constructive support and participation in efforts to strengthen the role of General Assembly as the chief deliberative, legislative and policy-making and representative body of the international community. 
Puri said an important aspect of the issue of General Assembly revitalisation is that a proper relationship of respect for the respective mandates has to be established between the General Assembly and the Security Council. India, which joined the Security Council last year, has noticed "firsthand" that the Council's agenda is "overburdened".
