Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has included Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a list of international figures to preside over five years of global truce that would halt the various conflicts currently raging in the world.

Apart from Mr. Modi, President Obrador’s “commission of global notables” includes Pope Francis and the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

“I will make the proposal in writing. I will present it to the UN. I have been saying it and I hope the media will help us spread it,” said Mr. Obrador in a press conference in Mexico City, presenting his vision for creating a period of peace in the world.

It is understood that the list will find mention during the annual session of the UN General Assembly that will convene in September. Mr. Modi and other leaders of the Member States are expected to participate in the session when the global body will discuss the crises in Ukraine, Gaza Strip and the regional tension over Taiwan.

Mr. Modi has received high honours from the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Bhutan and several other countries since since the beginning of his first stint in May 2014. That apart, he has also received awards from international non-government organisations..
