75th session of UN General Assembly opens today virtually

New York (UNA-OIC) – The 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly will open Tuesday at the UN headquarters in New York, in a virtual format, with very limited presence in the building, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Heads of State and Government from 193 member states will exchange statements via pre-recorded messages, played in the General Assembly Hall, on the theme “The Future We Want, the UN We Need: Reaffirming our Collective Commitment to Multilateralism”.

High-level events will include the SDG Moment, commemoration of UN’s 75th anniversary, the Summit on Biodiversity, a high-level meeting on the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women (Beijing+25) and several partner events taking place virtually.
