President to take part in 70th anniversary session of the UN General Assembly
The President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, will take part in the UN Summit, held in the organisation’s headquarters in New York on September 25th-27th
The Head of State will deliver his speech on the first day of the general debate of the UN General Assembly — September 28th, noted Andrei Dapkiunas, Permanent Representative of Belarus to the United Nations. “The 70th anniversary session of the UN General Assembly will be held immediately after the 2015 UN Summit, from September 28th. Most state leaders attending the summit will also take part in the general debate expected to last for more than a week,” added Mr. Dapkiunas.
He underlined the importance of the forthcoming summit, “We all see the importance of a longer meeting as an opportunity for communication, dialogue and to allow the interaction of world leaders. The international agenda is the main focus of course, but there will also be time for other issues to be considered. In line with tradition, the heads of state and governments are allowed to bring other subjects of interest to be debated.”
