Addressing the India-Africa Forum Summit here, PM Modi said the international institutions cannot be representative of the world if they do not give place to India and Africa.

"The world is undergoing political, economic, technological and security transition on a scale and speed rarely seen in recent history. Yet our global institutions reflect the circumstances of the century that we left behind, not the one we are in today," the Prime Minister said.

"This is a world of free nations and awakened aspirations. Our institutions cannot be representative of our world, if they do not give voice to Africa, with more than a quarter of UN members, or the world's largest democracy with one-sixth of humanity," he stated.

"That is why India and Africa must speak in one voice for reforms of the United Nations, including its Security Council," the Prime Minister added.
