President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will take part in the opening of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly on September 21-22 in New York, USA. There, the Head of State will deliver a speech, hold a number of bilateral meetings with presidents of other states, representatives of international organizations, investors, and businessmen.
"The President is going to New York with a clear goal: to further consolidate support for peace for Ukraine. This concerns the matters of countering Russian aggression, attracting investment to Ukraine, and combating the COVID-19 pandemic," the outlet Interfax-Ukraine quotes Dmytro Kuleba, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
According to him, the President "will negotiate with his counterparts on specific things in the sectors of security, politics, and economics."
The prominent theme that will be raised at meetings at all levels, in his phrase, will be the matter of the occupied Crimea.
"It will be a difficult conversation with the UN Secretary-General on this subject, because we want to see a greater involvement of the UN on the matters of Crimea," Kuleba noted.
He added that Zelenskyy would have a very packed, "literally minute-by-minute" schedule at the General Assembly.
