Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Monday and spoke in depth about the problems the world is facing currently.

She said that the world needs "global solidarity" now more than ever as she took the centre stage. Priyanka met Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai as well and emphasized the adverse after-effects of COVID-19 during her address.

She said, "As countries continue to struggle from the devastative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, as the climate crisis upends the lives and livelihoods, as conflicts rage, and as poverty displacement, hunger, and inequalities destroy the very foundation of the more just world that we have fought for such a long time." But these crises did not happen by chance, but they can be fixed with a plan. We have that plan. The UNSustainable Goals, a to-do list for the world."

Priyanka took to Instagram to express gratitude and wrote, "Walking through the gates of the United Nations this morning to speak at UNGA for the second time, as a proud representative of @unicef, gave me real pause.A special thank you to Secretary-General @antonioguterres for having me today."

It's important to mention here that Priyanka is the UNICEF global goodwill ambassador. She has been working with the organisation for more than a decade now. Meanwhile, as far as films are concerned, Priyanka will be seen in international projects such as 'It's All Coming Back To Me'. In Bollywood, she will be starring with Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif in Farhan Akhtar's 'Jee Le Zaraa', which promises to be another tale of friendship following the lineage of 'Dil Chahta Hai' and 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'.
