Sheikh Abdullah To Head Delegation At UN General Assembly

His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, will lead the UAE’s delegation at the 77th UN General Assembly (UNGA 77) in New York from 20-26 September 2022.

His Highness will present the UAE’s policy priorities and vision for international peace, security, and cooperation in his 24 September address to this year’s gathering, which is expected to have more than 150 heads of state and government in attendance.

The UAE delegation will engage with Member States, UN officials, and other stakeholders on urgent global challenges, including climate change, conflict resolution, post-pandemic recovery, humanitarian emergencies, and food insecurity.

As a member of the UN Security Council, the UAE has taken on an expanded role on these priorities and is working to promote conflict resolution, support an improved international counter-terrorism framework to address emerging threats, and enhance the full, equal, and meaningful participation of women in conflict resolution and peace operations.

Across the UN system, and as host of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 28) in 2023, the UAE is promoting greater action and cooperation to address global warming and its impact.
