/United Nations/ HH the Amir’s Speech at UN Tomorrow Embodies Constants of Qatar’s Policy Towards Current Issues

Emphasizing the belief of the State of Qatar in the United Nations' role and its lofty mission for the international community as well as its stability and prosperity, and the preservation of its rights without discrimination or exception, HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani will chair the State of Qatar's delegation in the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 78) in New York City in the United States of America.

HH the Amir will deliver a speech on Tuesday at the opening session of the high-level General Debate of the UNGA 78. His Highness's speech is expected to address the constants of Qatari policy and the State's stances towards the most prominent current Arab and international issues and files.

It is also expected that HH the Amir will renew in his speech the State of Qatar's continuous commitment to working with the United Nations, providing support to it, and enhancing partnership with its various bodies to enable it to address common global challenges and achieve its desired goals.

HH the Amir's participation in the new session of the international organization reflects HH's keenness to highlight the bright image of the State of Qatar and its positions before international forums. It also underscores Qatar's commitment to engaging in all international activities, dialogues, and meetings, which primarily aims to consult and exchange opinions and viewpoints towards issues and files on the regional and international arenas.

Since assuming the reins of power of the State of Qatar on June 25, 2013, HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani has been keen to attend the annual sessions of the General Assembly, with the aim of affirming the commitment of the State of Qatar to its international duties, and conveying the bright image of the State of Qatar, its people, and its civilized and humanitarian role towards various global issues and challenges and towards brotherly and friendly peoples.

HH the Amir's speeches at the UN have always shown that Qatar will remain, as it has always done, a sanctuary for the oppressed, and that Qatar will continue its humanitarian and relief efforts, as well as its mediation efforts to find fair solutions in conflict areas, and that ensuring regional and international peace and security remains a top priority in the State of Qatar's foreign policy.

As has been the custom since 1955 at the 10th session of the General Assembly, Brazil will be the first to address the General Assembly, followed by the US as the host country of the UN Headquarters. Afterwards, other member states will deliver their speeches throughout the days of general debate.

The General Debate of the UNGA 78 will begin on Tuesday, Sep. 19 and continue until Sep. 25. This debate constitutes the most prominent events of each new session of the General Assembly and begins a week after the official opening ceremony. It is a global summit during which a large number of Heads of State and Government, or sometimes their deputies, meet on the UN Hall and ascend one after another the podium of the General Assembly Hall to address the world on an issue of their choice.

World leaders will gather to participate in the annual high-level general debate this year under the theme "Rebuilding trust and reigniting global solidarity." During a week of high-level events, Heads of State and Government and Ministers will discuss solutions to interconnected global challenges to promote peace, security, and sustainable development.

The events of the high-level week include the 2023 Sustainable Development Goals Summit (2023 SDG Summit), which will be held on Sep. 18-19, 2023 to put the world back on right track towards a greener, cleaner, safer, and more just future for all. The summit is a broad global action plan that focuses on achieving 17 development goals, including eliminating extreme poverty and hunger, promoting climate action and quality education. It will mark the beginning of a new phase of progress towards achieving the slowed SDGs. It is expected that a forward-looking political declaration will be adopted that reaffirms commitment to the key promise of the 2030 Agenda, which is to leave no one behind. From this standpoint, participants seek over two days to reach consensus on best way forward. (MORE)
