September 14, 2021

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN WILL ADDRESS THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN NEW YORK, NEXT WEEK, FOR FIRST THE TIME AS U.S PRESIDENT.


THE WHITE HOUSE HAS DECLARED THAT PRESIDENT BIDEN, WOULD TRAVEL TO NEW YORK ON TUESDAY NEXT WEEK, TO SPEAK AT THE ASSEMBLY’S GENERAL DEBATE.


REPUBLICAN, DONALD TRUMP, BIDEN’S PREDECESSOR, WAS A HARSH CRITIC OF THE UNITED NATIONS, WHILE JOE BIDEN, ON THE OTHER HAND, HAS RELIED INCREASINGLY ON MULTILATERALISM AND WORKING TOGETHER WITH OTHER COUNTRIES.


LEADERS FROM MORE THAN 80 COUNTRIES ARE EXPECTED TO SPEAK IN PERSON IN NEW YORK, IN CONTRAST TO 2020, WHEN THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY WAS LARGELY CONDUCTED IN A VIRTUAL FORMAT.
