United Nations General Assembly in progress
The United Nations held its 70th General Assembly (UNGA, it rhymes with hunger!) in New York on Monday 28 September,2015.  

168 nations have sent their delegates, in almost every case the top official from each nation is taking part, including the leaders of all the world's super powers.   In less than two hours on Monday morning, Presidents Barack Obama, Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin, Hassan Rouhani and François Hollande took to the green marble poduium. 

Some were addressing the whole of the United Nations, some were directing their comments at specific 'other countries' and some were aiming their performance at their own domestic audiences.

World Leaders

This is probably the "greatest show on earth' and never before in history has there been such a high powered meeting of the most powerful representatives of the world's nations.

Sunday's meetings were focussed on climate change and the goals for development. Monday's talks were all aboiut the Syrian crisis, the refugee problem and finding a solution to the problems. There were many 'side meetings' over the weekend, during which President Putin pressed hard for President Assad of Syria to play a role in a transition to peace. Previously David Cameron of the UK had said that Assad's removal was a pre-reqesite, however he seemed to mellow on this point.
