Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob will deliver Malaysia’s national statement at the General Debate of the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York on 25 September 2021, via a pre-recorded video.
The theme of this year’s General Debate, “Building resilience through hope – to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainably, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people, and revitalise the United Nations”, underscores the need for greater urgency and ambition to end the pandemic and ensure an equitable and green recovery and accelerated implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
During the General Debate, Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri will highlight the theme “the World is a Family”, and how “Keluarga Malaysia” will work together with the “world family” to manage, overcome and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri will also reaffirm, among others, Malaysia’s long-standing positions on Palestine, Reform of the United Nations, Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the Global Ceasefire. The Prime Minister will also look to health diplomacy and peaceful coexistence to address the deep-rooted challenges of inequality, political instability and global governance.
The High-Level Week of the 76th UNGA will feature two mandated high-level meetings, in which Malaysia will be represented by Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri and Foreign Minister, Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah.
Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri addressed the UN Food Systems Summit on 23 September 2021 via a pre-recorded video. Meanwhile Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah will represent Malaysia and deliver its statement at the High-Level Meeting to Commemorate and Promote the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons on 28 September 2021 via a pre-recoded video.
As the United Nations work to end the pandemic everywhere and reboot the global economy, Malaysia will continue to work hand-in-hand with the UN and its Member States to successfully overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a family of nations, Malaysia also calls on all UN Member States to improve our resolve to strengthen international cooperation and multilateralism towards a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world where the global community of nations live in peaceful coexistence.
