President Moon Jae-in is set to address the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly this week.
According to Cheong Wa Dae, due to restrictions imposed amid the coronavirus pandemic, Moon will virtually deliver his fourth speech at the U.N. on Tuesday at 1 p.m. Eastern Time, or 2 a.m. Wednesday, Korea time.
The president will likely use his keynote speech to stress the importance of cooperation and solidarity with the international community for the fight against COVID-19 as well as climate change.
He may also seek support for South Korea's efforts to establish peace on the peninsula and in Northeast Asia.
There will be attention on whether Moon will make a new proposal to improve stalled inter-Korean ties and promote dialogue that has been stalled between North Korea and the United States.
President Moon is also scheduled to speak at a leaders' meeting of MIKTA, an informal partnership between Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea, Turkey and Australia.
