New York, Sept. 16 (BNA): The new UN General Assembly (UNGA)'s President Mogens Lykketoft opened the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, promising to do his outmost to represent each of the countries in a "fair and open" manner.

During the opening speech, Lykketoft of Denmark hoped for the upcoming session to be "truly historic," and a session not just of ground-breaking decisions, but one of much needed concerted action for people and planet.

In less than 10 days' time, he said, world leaders will gather in New York to adopt the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, describing it to be "seminal and revolutionary agreement."

The 69th session of the GA presided by Kutesa of Uganda, has held 105 plenary meetings and adopted 327 resolutions, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
