Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressed the 20th Summit of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation's Council of Heads of State via video-conferencing. Here are highlights of what the prime minister said.

* The United Nations has completed 75 years. But despite many successes, the core goal of the United Nations remains incomplete. At a time when the world is struggling with the economic and social suffering arising due to the, there is an expectation to bring about radical changes in the system.

* A 'reformed multilateralism' that reflects today's global realities, one that discusses topics such as expectations of all stakeholders, contemporary challenges, and human welfare -- that's the expectation from SCO member nations.

* In this very difficult time of unprecedented epidemic, India's pharma industry has sent essential medicines to more than 150 countries. As the world's largest vaccine producing nation, India will use its vaccine production and distribution capacity to help the entire humanity in fighting this crisis.

* India strongly believes in peace, security and prosperity. And we have always voiced opposition to terrorism, illegal arms smuggling, drugs and money laundering. India has been firm in its commitment to work under with the SCO as per the principles laid down in its Charter

* It is unfortunate that repeated attempts are being made to unnecessarily bring bilateral issues into the SCO agenda that violate the SCO Charter and Shanghai Spirit. Such efforts are contrary to the spirit of consensus and cooperation that defines SCO.
