Click here for a recap of things that happened on Wednesday at #UNGA.
And here’s a photo album with other highlights.
More high-profile meetings and side-events are on tap for Thursday.
The Security Council will hold a meeting on non-proliferation, with a focus on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
Meanwhile, General Assembly will hold a high-level meeting to assess the progress made in the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases. Around the world, some 71% of all deaths are linked to non-communicable diseases, many of which can be managed or prevented.
The General Debate will also continue in the General Assembly Hall with dozens of world leaders delivering their national statements.
Also on Thursday, the European Union and the United Nations will jointly launch their latest Spotlight Initiative – this time, focused on ending violence against women and girls in Latin America. The effort is designed to call attention to the prevalence of gender violence in the region, where 1 woman is killed every 2 hours.
