Other is the high-level plenary meeting to commemorate UN's 75th anniversary. PM's address will certainly be the highlight of our participation in UNGA," Tirumurti said. He added. "We are entering UN Security Council at a very interesting if not critical juncture. We will be entering Security Council during the 75th year of UN.
