A high-level European Union delegation will be in New York for the 74th United Nations General Assembly next week.

The EU representatives will host and participate in a large number of events and meetings with world leaders, focusing on conflict prevention, peace and security; a common positive agenda with the promotion and protection of human rights at the heart of multilateralism; as well as an expanding global engagement on issues such as climate action, the environment, sustainable development goals, and the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

The Commission’s First vice-president, Frans Timmermans, and EU’s foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini, will kick-off the week on 22 September, with a bilateral meeting with UN chief António Guterres, further strengthening the strategic EU-UN partnership.

The agenda of the individual EU representatives can be found on their websites.
