Swaraj to address UN General Assembly session on 29 Sept

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not likely to attend this year's UNGA session. He had given his maiden address to the UN General Assembly as Prime Minister in 2014

United Nations: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will address the annual high-level UN General Assembly session here on 29 September, according to the provisional list of speakers released by the UN.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not likely to attend this year’s UNGA session. He had given his maiden address to the UN General Assembly as Prime Minister in 2014.

According to the first provisional list of speakers for the General of the 73rd session of the General Assembly, Swaraj will address the high-level session in the afternoon of 29 September. She had addressed the General Debate last year as well.

The General will open on 25 September and run through 1 October. US President Donald Trump, who had delivered his first address to global leaders from the General Assembly hall’s iconic green podium last year, will address the high-level session on the morning of 25 September. The US is traditionally the second speaker on the opening day of the General Debate, after Brazil.

According to the list of speakers, Pakistan’s Head of Government is scheduled to address global leaders on 27 September.

Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan is expected to make his debut in for the high-level session. Khan’s party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf had emerged as the single largest side in the National Assembly in the 25 July general elections.

The party’s parliamentary committee has officially nominated Khan as the party’s prime ministerial and he is likely to take oath as the country’s next Prime Minister on 14 August.

In 2015, Modi had attended the high-level UN Sustainable Development Summit ahead of the General Debate, when world leaders had adopted the ambitious 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, an intergovernmental set of aspiration Goals with 169 targets.

He had also attended the UN Peacekeeping Summit hosted by President Barack Obama when he had announced that India will contribute an additional battalion of 850 troops for UN peacekeeping operation.
