Lula da Silva outlines the world’s most important issues at the UN General Assembly session
Possible reform of the Security Council, climate change and social inequality are among the issues to be addressed
Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva delivered an insightful speech at the opening of the 78th session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly. The event is being held in New York, USA, as reported by Brasil 247, a partner of TV BRICS.
Traditionally, Brazil has opened the ceremony since 1945, 78 years ago. Da Silva emphasised the problem of social inequality in his speech, mentioning that the problem of hunger, which he spoke about 20 years ago here at the UN General Assembly, is still not solved.
In his speech, the Brazilian president paid a lot of attention to the climate problem, emphasising that it is worsening year after year. The politician outlined the measures that Brazil is taking to try to solve climate issues and noted that developed countries must bear a greater financial burden to meet the commitments set out in the Paris Agreement and the Global Biodiversity Framework.
Issues of equality and the protection of women’s rights were also highlighted by Lula as crucial for the global community.
