76th Session

United Nations General Assembly

This year marked the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 76), opening in New York on September 14, 2021. UNGA High-Level Week took place September 20-24. The United States viewed UNGA 76 as an opportunity for the world to come together to address the most pressing global challenges of today, and to demonstrate the U.S. commitment to multilateral action in advancing global health, combating the climate crisis, promoting human rights and defending the rules-based international order.

Assistant Secretary of State for Global Public Affairs Liz Allen: “What is UNGA?”

As I told our service members in Japan, when it comes to America’s national security, one of our defining missions is to uphold the international rules-based order. The work of the United States in the Indo-Pacific is critical to that mission.

Congratulations to @DoreenBogdan on her historic election to serve as @ITU’s next Secretary General. She will help close digital divides, connect 2.7 billion people worldwide to reliable internet, and chart a course for the ITU that is innovative, collaborative, and inclusive.

The United States and Fiji are natural partners in the global campaign to tackle the climate crisis. Together we are pushing the world’s major economies to increase their ambitions and further reduce greenhouse gas emissions ahead of COP27 in Egypt this year.

.@StateDeptSpox discusses the ongoing situation in the West Bank: “The United States, and other international partners, stand ready to help, but cannot substitute for vital actions by the parties to mitigate conflict and restore calm.”

It was a huge honor to lead our 9th 🇺🇸🇦🇪 Economic Policy Dialogue – a platform that has transformed our economic partnership & helped build a booming trade of $23bn between our two countries.

We covered a breadth of topics — from climate action to digital; clean energy & IP.
