77th UN General Assembly commences


The 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) commenced on Tuesday.

The UN General Assembly is the main policy-making organ of the United Nations.

This is the first in-person gathering since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 77th regular session will run from Sept. 13 through to Sept. 27 while the high-level week of the gathering will be from Sept. 20 to 27.

At the opening session, Hungarian diplomat Csaba Korosi took over from Abdulla Shahid as the UNGA’s president, and he is to lead the assembly for the next twelve months.

Korosi had served as vice-president of the General Assembly during the 67th session in 2011-2012.

The general debate remains UN’s most prominent event with world leaders and heads of government converging on the organization’s New York City headquarters for nine days of speeches and meetings.
