During the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 77) in New York from 20-26 September 2022, UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan will lead the UAE delegation.
It is expected that more than 150 heads of state and government will attend this year’s gathering on 24 September, where the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation will explain the UAE’s policies, priorities, and vision for international peace, security, and cooperation.
During the summit, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan will lead the UAE delegation to discuss urgent global challenges, such as climate change, conflict resolution, recovery from a pandemic, humanitarian emergencies, and food insecurity, with the Member States, UN officials, and other stakeholders.
UAE has become more involved in these priorities as a member of the UN Security Council, and it is working to promote conflict resolution, enhance women’s full, equal, and meaningful participation in peace operations and conflict resolution, and support an improved international counterterrorism framework to address emerging threats. With the UN climate conference in 2023, the UAE is promoting greater action and cooperation to address the impact of global warming.
