The meeting of the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) will begin in New York on Tuesday but most of the action will be conducted online, this time in view of the global pandemic coronavirus (COVID-19).



This time the general discussion segment is to be held from 22 to 26 September. The head of any country is not expected to travel to the United Nations headquarters to deliver its message on this year's topic. This time the topic is related to combating Kovid.

The concerned heads of state have been invited to send previously recorded speeches. Representatives of the respective countries will present the respective speeches in the hall of the General Assembly in New York.

The US has banned the entry of passengers from China, Iran, the Schengen region of the European Union, Britain, Ireland, and Brazil. In addition, any international visitor or traveler arriving in New York State requires a 14-day quarantine. Both measures do not appear to welcome any foreign officials attending the 75th session of the General Assembly.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will address a high-level meeting on 21 September about this important event. During the same program, 193 members of the United Nations will adopt a declaration and remember the achievements of the United Nations as well as the failures.
