UNGA New Setting of Speeches
Last month, former UN President Tijani Mohammad-Gang said that each member state, observer and the European Union asked to present a video recording provided by a senior official for publication at the General Assembly.
Speech is limited to 15 minutes.
The Hall of Emblem of the General Assembly will not be empty as videos will be presented by representatives of each country who will be physically present.
The same procedure applies to many special high-level sessions, including the celebration of the special 75th anniversary of the United Nations.
A side event like Climate Week in New York is unlikely to welcome audiences in New York this year after the Mohamed Gang suggested airing it online.
The decision to include video recorded in the high-level general debate to take place at the start of the 75th session of the General Assembly was made last month by the UN agency using the new “silent” method.
If there are no objections, the President will distribute a letter confirming that the resolution has adopted.
