What to expect from the 73rd General Assembly of the United Nations?September 21, 20181 min read
In what is supposed to be a gathering of the world’s leaders to discuss, debate and solve global problems – that spirit of collaboration and thinking might be all but absent this session.
It’s expected that President Donald Trump will be pointing both barrels directly at Iran during his speech. His accusations of Iran casing chaos and terror around the world will no doubt please his conservative base leading into November’s elections – but it may be met with resistance and even backlash from leaders from around the world.
The tone could even take the unlikely turn that it is Trump and America that are the threat to peace.
Times certainly have changed.
So, what will come from the upcoming General Assembly?
Does the UN have the influence it once enjoyed?
And once the meeting is over, does any of it really matter?
There are a lot of questions to be answered and that’s where an expert from Cedarville University can help.
