World leaders are arriving at the United Nations headquarters in New York, United States for the start of the 76th UN General Assembly.

The General Assembly starts at 2 pm Nigerian time today.

Live video by Reuters shows the leaders already trooping to the assembly venue.


The leaders will discuss how to boost efforts to fight both climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic, which last year forced them to send video statements for the annual gathering.

The General Debate of the 76th Session will end on September 27.
