Presidential Remarks to the United Nations General Assembly

Since its inception more than 60 years ago, the United Nations General Assembly has been an important platform for U.S. Presidents to address the world's most challenging issues, from poverty and development to peace and security. It is only in this forum that the United States President has the opportunity to raise US foreign policy priorities and global issues of concern to heads of state and national leaders that represent all 193 member states at the same time. This is a full collection of speeches that were made since 1945 by U.S. Presidents at the UN General Assembly.
