78th UNGA Session: World Leaders To Deliberate On Key Peace, Security Issues

With the high-level segment of the 193-member assembly’s 78th session beginning Sept 19, Caretaker Prime Minister, Anwaar-ul-Haq, will join world leaders at UN General Assembly session to deliberate about key international peace and security issues.

US President Joe Biden, as leader of the host country, will be the second speaker on Tuesday, the opening day of the annual gathering of world leaders.

The list of speakers indicates the presence of 145 Heads of State and Government, 6 Vice Presidents, 4 Deputy Prime Ministers and 38 Ministers or Chiefs of Delegations — a total of 196.

This year’s theme is ‘restoring trust and reigniting global solidarity’.

In a series of briefings, UN officials have said that efforts to address global south needs, including tackling poverty and diseases and improving access to clean water and energy, are trailing far behind the target.
