President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih will deliver a speech at the 76th United Nations General Assembly for the second time, the President’s Office said on Tuesday.
According to the President’s Office, President Solih will be departing to the United States next week to make his address at the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly, which will take place in New York on September 21.
While Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid was elected as the UNGA president in June, the 76th session is slated to begin tomorrow.
According to the UN agenda for the 76th session, the president will give his speech on the opening day of the session, and he will be third in line.
The Maldives government has yet to provide a list of officials who will accompany the delegation during the president’s visit to the United States to attend the UNGA.
Solih addressed the 74th United Nations General Assembly in New York for the first time in September 2019, making him the first Maldivian head of state to do so in almost seven years.
