Ukraine expects the UN General Assembly to adopt a resolution on human rights violations in the occupied Crimea and Russia, said the Head of the Ukrainian State Petro Poroshenko as cited by a QHA correspondent.
The UN General Assembly, which starts its work in New York, should also have its say in this regard. Ukraine expects the UN General Assembly to adopt a new resolution on human rights violations in the Crimea and thereby to support the new Ukrainian initiative, the President told at the opening of the 13th annual meeting of Yalta European Strategy (YES).
The President went on to say the adoption of the resolution is an important step in the de-occupation policy.
We count on the support in New York, said Poroshenko.
The General Assembly session will consider 170 agenda items. Its main topics are the development process in 2016-2030, the settlement of intra- and inter-state conflicts, as well as the migration issues.
The current UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stops serving his eight-year term December 31, 2016. A new Secretary General will be elected prior to the Ban Ki-moon’s retirement.
The ex-prime Minister of Portugal, Antonio Guterres is considered to be the leader of the race for the post of the UN Secretary-General.
