President-elect of the UN General Assembly Maria Fernanda Espinosa Garces today said that she had a successful meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi where the two agreed on the importance of improving the efficiency of the world body.
The two discussed the need for a stronger UN action on major global challenges including terrorism, a statement from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said.
"Successful meeting with the PM of India @narendramodi on my arrival to Delhi. I shared my priorities. We agreed on the importance of implementing commitments and improving the efficiency of the UN," Garces said in a tweet.
She also expressed gratitude for India's support to her office.
"We will continue working together," Garces said.
"They discussed the need for stronger UN action on major global challenges including terrorism, United Nations reform and climate change," the PMO statement said.
The UN General Assembly in June overwhelmingly elected Garces as its next president, making her only the fourth woman to lead the 193-member world body in its 73-year history.
