The final decision on the offline or online format of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's participation in the 76th session of the UN General Assembly has not yet been made.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said this at an online briefing on Thursday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.
"The possibility of such a visit [by President Zelensky to the UN General Assembly] is currently being considered, but no final decisions have been made yet, because the format of participation in the General Assembly also provides an opportunity to speak online," Kuleba said.
He added that it is important for the Ukrainian president that each of his visits is meaningful and effective. "Therefore, we will decide whether it will be a physical visit to the General Assembly or it will be the president's online participation in the UN General Assembly," Kuleba said.
Zelensky's press secretary, Serhiy Nykyforov, earlier told Ukrinform that Zelensky planned to visit New York in late September during the general debate and the high-level meetings of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly.
According to the information published on the UN website, the general debate of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly will take place on September 21-27, 2021.
