STORYLINE:

Global leaders are gathering at United Nations Headquarters in New York today (19 Sep) for the annual round of top-level diplomatic talks known as the General Debate.

The debate will shine a spotlight on the needs of the world’s people, with discussions on vital issues such as sustainable development and climate change.

Ahead of the Debate, which runs through 25 September, UN Secretary-General António Guterres (19 Sep) will present his annual Report on the work of the Organization. This year's Assembly President, Miroslav Lajčák of Slovakia, will then deliver the keynote opening speech. This will then be followed by Brazilian President Michel Temer, whose country holds the traditional role of first national speaker. He will be followed by United States President Donald Trump, as leader of the host nation.

The President of the UN General Assembly has dubbed this year a “year of firsts,” which will see the negotiation of the first intergovernmental compact on migration and the signing of the first agreement on the elimination of nuclear weapons.
