New York, Sept 26 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday arrived in New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly here.

"The Prime Minister has stepped out of the aircraft," the PMO India tweeted.

"The Indian Ambassador to USA and other officials welcome the Prime Minister at the airport," it said.

Hours before embarking on six-day US trip, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation prior to his departure, where he said that he will pitch for reforms in the United Nations when he addresses there.

About his address in UNGA, Modi said, “Since its participation as a founding member of the United Nations in 1945, India has shown unwavering commitment to multilateral processes to advance peace and security and promote broad-based inclusive economic development in the world. India`s contribution to UN peacekeeping operations over decades is a strong testimony of our efforts to contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the UN charter.”
