Speakers List


The list of speakers for the general debate will be open from 10 a.m. (New York time) on 6 April 2020. States parties wishing to add the names of their representatives to the list of speakers for the general debate are invited to do so through the eSpeakers module of the e-deleGATE portal. Representatives of international organizations without access to the portal who wish to be inscribed on the list of speakers are invited to contact Rene Holbach of the Secretariat (holbach@un.org, tel.: 1 212 963 3322). Speakers’ lists for the main committees will be opened at a later stage during the Review Conference.

Given that a large number of States parties are expected to take part in the general debate, the President-designate has indicated that it would be highly desirable for statements not to exceed five minutes so that the general debate can be completed within the envisaged time frame. Representatives speaking on behalf of a group of States are encouraged to deliver statements that do not exceed eight minutes.

Delegations are kindly requested to submit electronic versions of their statements in PDF to papersmart6@un.org as early as possible for posting on the PaperSmart portal. The title and the date of the meeting should be indicated in the subject line of the email. Statements will be made available for viewing and downloading from the portal upon delivery. The Secretariat kindly requests that delegations provide only 25 hard copies of official statements for the technical services. The United Nations does not provide photocopying services.
