Algeria elected as Vice-President of the 79th session of the United Nations General Assembly


New York (United Nations) – Algeria was elected yesterday, Thursday, by acclamation, to the position of Vice-President of the 79th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

With this election, the Permanent Representative of Algeria to the United Nations, Mr Amar Bendjama , will represent the African Group, alongside his counterparts elected from the rest of the other regional groups, in the position of Vice-President.

Algeria, as Vice-President of the General Assembly, will contribute to the conduct and management of the public sessions of the United Nations General Assembly from September 2024 until September 2025.

Among the most important events that will be witnessed by the 79th session of the United Nations General Assembly is the “Future Summit,” which will mark the work of the high-level segment of the session expected in September 2024.

This appointment also comes at a time when Africa faces significant challenges, such as completing decolonization, combating poverty, sustainable development, and food security.

Algerian diplomacy, within the framework of the directives of the President of the Republic, Mr Abdelmadjid Tebboune, will firmly commit to contributing to the multilateral effort aimed at confronting these fundamental challenges and promoting sustainable and just solutions to the many and multifaceted challenges of the international community.

Thanks to this election, the efforts of Algerian diplomacy at the General Assembly level will be combined with the tireless efforts it is making in its capacity as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2024-2025.

This dual representation in two of the most influential and decision-making bodies in the United Nations reflects Algeria’s confirmed prominence on the international scene, as well as its firm commitment to promoting international peace and security.”
