She will place the proposal when she addresses the UN General Assembly (UNGA) virtually on September 26, said Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen at a virtual press conference today.

"Obviously, coronavirus pandemic will be a very important issue at the UNGA this year. The focus will be on how to cooperate in health and economic recovery from the pandemic," he said.

Also, from Bangladesh perspective, Rohingya issue will be another important point to be presented by the Prime Minister, he said.

"The progress of the ongoing legal process at the International Court of Justice and the investigation by the International Criminal Court will come up," Momen added.
