NEW YORK: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina attended the high-level General Debate of the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) here on the first day today.
The General Debate is being held from September 21 to September 27.
The 76th session of the UNGA opened on September 14. On that day, Abdulla Shahid of the Maldives was sworn in as the General Assembly President and he opened the 76th session.
Due to the global pandemic, the number of delegations allowed into the General Assembly Hall is limited and UN Member States were encouraged to provide pre-recorded statements instead of representing in person at UN Headquarters.
Over 100 heads of state or government are expected to attend in person.
The UN General Assembly is the main policy-making organ of the United Nations.
