India's former permanent representative at the United Nations, Syed Akbaruddin, on Saturday said countries like China and India stand very differently at the UN, in terms of their perspective and approach.

Akbaruddin was speaking during an online interaction with the Vice Chancellor and other faculty members of the University of Hyderabad, his alma mater.

About his experience working at the United Nations, he said: "The ones who have been a part of the United Nations very well know that the UN is not an enchanted place. Countries like China and India stand very differently in the UN, in terms of their perspective and approach. China is always quiet and speaks only for itself whereas India always wants to speak for everyone."

Akbaruddin served as India's permanent representative at the UN from January 2016 to April 2020.   (IANS)
