THE PRESIDENT of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, will address the world leaders’ debate at the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday around 6 pm local time, which is around midnight our time.
Vučić will speak as the 13th speaker of the afternoon session, and before him the representative of the Congo and the President of Ukraine, Vladimir Zelensky, will speak via video link.
Let us remind you that the debate of world leaders at the General Assembly of the United Nations begins today in New York, and the opening will be attended by the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić.
The general debate lasts until September 26.
As many as 92 presidents of states and kings and 58 presidents of governments will participate in the General Debate, while the other state delegations will be represented by vice presidents of states and governments and ministers of foreign affairs.
The main theme of this year’s session of the UN General Assembly, which began on September 13, is “The Watershed Moment: Transformative Solutions for Interrelated Challenges.”
The general debate of world leaders begins at 3 pm Serbian time, that is, at 9 am in the USA.
He will traditionally open the debate with his address to the presidents of Brazil and the USA.
Unlike the previous year, when there was a limited number of delegation members due to covid measures, this year this is not the case, so it is expected that there will be between 2,000 and 3,000 people in the UN complex on the East River.
According to protocol, the speeches of world leaders last no more than 15 minutes.
According to the UN, this year’s theme “Tipping Point: Transformative Solutions for Interrelated Challenges” stems from the recognition that the world is at a critical moment in the history of the UN due to complex and interconnected crises, including the covid-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine, humanitarian challenges without precedent, a turning point in climate change, as well as growing concern about threats to the global economy.
Therefore, it is necessary to find and focus on common solutions to these crises and build a more sustainable and resilient world for everyone and for generations to come, the UN stated.
Today, after the opening of the General Debate, Vučić will have a meeting with the President of Guatemala, Alexander Eduardo Djamatei Falla, then a meeting with the Chancellor of Austria, Karl Nehamer, and then he will attend an informal lunch for the leaders of the Western Balkans organized by the head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borelj.
Vučić will also have a meeting with the president of the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Betsy Corey, and later a meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
The President will also meet with Congressman Eric Svolwell and have some other meetings.
