MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The UN’s annual summit returned in person for the first time in three years on Tuesday, with UN Chief Antonio Guterres warning in his opening speech of an upcoming “winter of global discontent” from rising prices, a warming planet and deadly conflicts.

The 77th General Assembly meeting of world leaders convenes under the shadow of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has unleashed a global food crisis.

In his opening remark, Mr. Guterres said:” The world is in “great peril” and has to tackle conflicts and climate catastrophes, increasing poverty and inequality.”

The UN Chief also wants the world to address divisions among major powers that have gotten worse since Russia invaded Ukraine.

The first day of the plenary session featured speeches by the French President, Emmanuel Macron German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Brazilian President Jair Bolsanaro, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamin Bin Hamad Al Thani.

President George Weah is expected to address the world gathering on Thursday, September 22, 2022,, focusing on a range of pertinent national and global issues.
