2017 General Assembly Debate
Each year in September the world’s leaders gather at the United Nations in New York City for the annual General Assembly general debate. Established in 1945 under the Charter of the United Nations, the General Assembly occupies a central position as the chief deliberative, policymaking and representative organ of the United Nations. Comprising all members of the United Nations, it provides a unique forum for multilateral discussion of the full spectrum of international issues covered by the Charter.
