This year's main theme of the general debate is, "Galvanizing multilateral efforts for poverty eradication, quality education, climate action and inclusion," Momen said.
Bangladeshi delegates led by Sheikh Hasina will raise other issues like climate change, poverty eradication, quality education, women empowerment during the general debate, the minister said.
