Turkey’s Communications Directorate to hold panel ahead of UNGA


Ahead of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, Turkey’s Communications Directorate will hold a panel discussion focusing on Ankara's perspective on the international order in the post COVID-19 era.

The panel, Rebuilding Trust and Inspiring Hope in the post-COVID-19 Era: Turkey's Perspective on the International Order, will be held at the UN Plaza in New York, Communications Director Fahrettin Altun said in a statement on Friday.

"As part of our active public diplomacy around the world that we pursue day and night in the service of our nation under the leadership of our President, we will hold a panel in New York, US," he said.

The session will discuss various issues including how the UN can be more democratic, efficient, transparent, fair and human-oriented in the changing world order, and the latest developments in Afghanistan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's concrete reform proposals regarding the UN, which he has highlighted in his new book, A Fairer World Is Possible, will be evaluated.

Politicians, academics, and representatives from the media, think tanks and non-governmental organizations are expected to attend the discussion.

Rich Outzen, former US State Department adviser, and Kilic Bugra Kanat, research director at the Washington offices of Turkey’s Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research (SETA), will be the speakers, while TRT World's managing editor Ghida Fakhry will moderate the panel.

Erdogan will reach the US on Sunday to attend the 76th session of the UN General Assembly.
