India and the Bahamas have always stood by one another in international and multilateral forums like the United Nations. The Bahamas supported India's UN proposal for a Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism and India's application for a Non-Permanent Seat on the UN Security Council for 2011–12. Additionally, the nation backs India's bid for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. At organizations like the Commonwealth, the International Law Commission, the International Maritime Organization, the UN Security Council, the UN Human Rights Council, and the UNHRC Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, the two nations have frequently voted for each other's candidates. The Indian diplomat Kamalesh Sharma's application for the position of Commonwealth Secretary-General was initially supported by the Bahamas. Frederick Mitchell, the Bahamian minister of foreign affairs, stated that Sharma supported numerous small island developing nations like the Bahamas.
