The UNGA president said: “We have a lot of people, leaders who have the intention to come here. Of course, we also limited the number of people who will come into the building. Because the accompanying delegations are larger than the expectations from time to time, so there will be only 1+6 all together (for each delegation).”

The first day of the high-level General Debate of the UNGA 76 will be Sept. 21. It will conclude on Sept. 27.
