France congratulates Fiji’s permanent representative, Peter Thomson, on his election to the presidency of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, which will begin on September 21.

We are delighted by the prospect of working closely with Mr. Thomson on all the issues the General Assembly deals with, particularly the implementation of Agenda 2030 on sustainable development and the fight against climate disruption in the aftermath of the Paris Agreement.
