Viral document trending on Facebook indicating President George Weah is traveling to New York with 70 government officials and employees is fake, according to Presidential Press Secretary Isaac Solo Kelgbeh.

The purported list shows more than 40 security agents are part of the President’s delegation that would attend the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Kelgbeh told the Oracle News Daily it’s deliberate disinformation and cheap propaganda from the opposition.

“It is a deadly lie that is totally far from the truth as it relates to the president’s delegates to the United Nations General Assembly.

Presidential protocol has not released names of people traveling to the UN.”

The 78th UN General Assembly will take place September 18 to 26, 2023, at a time of unprecedented setbacks on global progress.

The Earth is getting hotter, faster. Poverty and food insecurity are worsening, amid war and inflation.

Humanitarian needs are escalating in scale and cost. Inequality is deepening.

During UNGA 78, world leaders, including young leaders, will discuss and debate how to confront the global polycrisis, and find strategies to accelerate action on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The SDG Summit will be a central UNGA 78 event. It will bring together leaders and communities to reaffirm commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals at the halfway mark to 2030.

The Climate Ambition Summit, scheduled for September 20, will be an opportunity for leaders to demonstrate their collective commitment to respond to the mounting climate emergency.

During UNGA 78, the United Nations Foundation will highlight key moments, and share insights and perspectives from leaders, experts, and influencers across borders and sectors. Bookmark this page for the latest updates, events, and commentary on UNGA 78.
