World Leaders Convene At U.N. This Week

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine is expected to dominate the landscape as leaders from around the world convene at the 77th General Assembly of the United Nations.  Other concerns such as the world’s food supply and growing energy prices are also expected to be high priority for the annual gathering.  For the first time in three years, leaders will be attending and delivering speeches in person with one notable exception, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, after a majority vote of member states, is allowed to pre-record his message.
