The United Nations General Assembly, comprised of all 193 Members of the United Nations, provides a unique forum for multilateral discussion of the full spectrum of international issues covered by the Charter.

Each year, the Secretary-General draws one Member State amongst all to occupy the first seat in the General Assembly Hall.
