The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) 77th Session kicked off on Tuesday as this is the first in-person gathering since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The UN General Assembly is the main policy-making organ of the United Nations and the 77th Regular Session is to be held from Sept. 13th till Sept. 27th while the High-Level week of the gathering will hold from Sept. 20th to Sept. 27th.
At the opening session, the Hungarian Diplomat Csaba Korosi took over from Abdulla Shahid as the UNGA’s President and is to lead the Assembly for the next twelve months.
Korosi had previously served as Vice-President of the General Assembly during the 67th Session in 2011-2012.
The General Debate has always remained the UN's most Prominent Event with World Leaders and Heads of Government converging at the Organisation’s New York City headquarters for nine days of Speeches and Meetings.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to address the High-Level General Debate next week Wednesday.
