The 78th general debate of the United Nations General Assembly will run from 19 to 26 September. As he wrote on X (Twitter), the Ukrainian President has already arrived with his wife. Eagerly awaited whether there will be a meeting between Zelensky and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov or not.
So far, a total of 140 heads of state and government have announced their participation. The President of Ukraine will deliver a speech on Tuesday. “Ukraine will present a concrete proposal to UN member states on how to strengthen the principle of territorial integrity and improve the UN’s ability to deter and deter aggression,” the head of state said at the X.
Zelensky on Wednesday will attend an open meeting of the UN Security Council on the Ukraine war and hold bilateral talks. But the Ukrainian President’s visit will not end in New York this time. Then, on Thursday we will go to Washington, where President Joe Biden will welcome Zelensky to the White House and also meet with congressional representatives. “I would like to thank the United States on behalf of Ukraine for its help in our fight for freedom and independence,” the Ukrainian president wrote on Twitter.
Zelensky last attended the United Nations General Assembly in February 2022. Last year he addressed the United Nations in a video address.
