On Monday, UN member states are expected to adopt a declaration, reaffirming their commitments to a reinvigorated multilateralism.

In his opening remarks at the UNGA meeting, Volkan Bozkir, president of the 75th session of the UNGA, said “the context in which we are working serves to remind us of the necessity of the multilateral system and inspires us all to make use of the UN Charter to address our collective challenges”, in reference to the Covid-19 pandemic.
