UN General Assembly 2018: All the latest updates

New York City – (warsoor) – World leaders continue to gather in New York City on Thursday to take part in the third day of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Palestine and Israel are set to dominate the agenda as Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepare to address the meeting.

Earlier this year, the US embassy was shifted to Jerusalem and later Palestine Liberation Organisation’s Washington office shut down. But, for millions of Palestinians on the ground it was President Donald Trump’s decision to cut funding to UN agency for Palestinian refugees that’s affecting their daily lives.

As in previous appearances before the UN, Netanyahu is also expected to discuss Iran and his support of the US decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal.
