Paris, France, April 10, 2015 — The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, visited UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) headquarters to mark its 70th anniversary. Speaking to a cheering, overflowing audience on his first official visit, he used the occasion to emphasize the importance of India’s relationship with the Organization.

“I am truly honoured to address UNESCO.”

“I feel specially privileged to visit this great institution in its 70th anniversary year.”

“No organization serves our cause more than this one.”

“It draws strength from the basic character of nature - the harmony and unity in diversity.”

“That is why UNESCO was among the first missions of the United Nations.”

“That is why India values the work of UNESCO so deeply; and, cherishes our partnership so immensely.”

In his speech, he explained why UNESCO’s mandate is so important to India, and to the world.

India has a strong relationship with UNESCO. It has inscribed 32 properties on the World Heritage List, including the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort Complex and the Manas Wildlife Sanctuary. The country has listed seven elements of documentary heritage on UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register, nine reserves under UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere Programme and supports 10 UNESCO Chairs in a range of educational fields.
