The United Nations General Assembly opened its 75th session Tuesday in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic and in an increasingly fractured world where multilateral institutions were questioned.

With protective masks and socially distanced seating, diplomats from the 193 member states gathered in the General Assembly’s hemicycle to inaugurate the new session, a week before the start of the annual debate between leaders, which for the first time will be held virtually. EFE-EPA
