Mnangagwa Off To New York For UN General Assembly

Mnangagwa Off To New York For UN General Assembly

President Emmerson Mnangagwa left the country on Monday night for New York, United States of America, to attend the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

This year’s UNGA will be the first to be held face to face following a two-year break because of COVID-19-related travel restrictions.

For the last two years, UNGA has been taking place virtually through pre-recorded speeches.

Mnangagwa was seen off at the Robert Mugabe International Airport by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, Cabinet Ministers, senior Government officials and service chiefs.

He is expected to address the UNGA during the course of this week.

UNGA 77 which is running under the theme, “A watershed moment: transformative solutions to interlocking challenges”, started on Monday, 19 September.

In a press briefing on 14 September, UN secretary-general António Guterres said dialogue and debate are key to finding solutions to the challenges facing the world which include war, hunger and climate change, among others. He said:

Our world is blighted by war, battered by climate chaos, scarred by hate, and shamed by poverty, hunger and inequality.

As fractures deepen and trust evaporates, we need to come together around solutions. People need to see results in their everyday lives, or they will lose faith in their governments and institutions, and they will lose hope in the future.

That hope can indeed only come through the dialogue and debate that are the beating heart of the UN and that must prevail next week against all divisions.

UNGA is the main policy-making organ of the Organization. Comprising all Member States, it provides a unique forum for multilateral discussion of the full spectrum of international issues covered by the Charter of the United Nations.
