Brief about the 72nd U.N. General Assembly

Instituted since 1946, the U.N. General Assembly is the biggest annual gathering of world leaders as the body put it, ‘to tackle humanity’s greatest challenges. 193 countries will have their leaders or representatives giving addresses.

It is the first United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres who took over last year from Ban Ki-Moon. Ki-moon stepped down after serving two five-year terms.

The Summit takes place between Tuesday, September 19 until Monday, September 25. The theme for this year’s session is:

“Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and a Decent Life for all on a Sustainable Planet”.

We share a series of photos of African leaders doing ‘political and diplomatic business’ ahead opening the world’s biggest annual meeting of political leaders.
