MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. A global development agenda for the period up to 2030 will be approved at a summit on the eve of the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday.
"In the United Nations’ 70th anniversary year, it is important to pay tribute to economic and social development organizations for their efforts," Lavrov told a Model UN international student conference at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations.
"Thanks to the United Nations, it has become possible to establish global partnership uniting the international community around agreed, well-defined and clear objectives," he said.
"Just one day before the General Assembly anniversary session, a summit will take place in New York in late September, where the post-2015 global development agenda will be approved," Lavrov said, adding that: "Russia is actively participating in this work."
