Sisi to Address UN General Assembly On Wednesday

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is scheduled to give his speech at the 69th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York on Wednesday.

He is expected to address fighting terrorism and the situation in Egypt after the military’s ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, which followed a wave of mass protests against his rule.

Sisi delivered a speech on climate change on Tuesday before the UN Climate Summit, urging nation-states, international institutions and the private sector to invest in renewable energy projects in Arab countries.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has invited world leaders to the summit to “galvanise and catalyse climate action,” according to the UN website. U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to attend the summit.
