U.S. President Donald Trump is set to give his first speech at the U.N. General Assembly meet in New York on Tuesday, as the world leaders from 193 nations gather to discuss wide-ranging issues, the key being the North Korea crisis, climate change and global security.

Trump is scheduled to meet Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the U.N. annual summit, and the two leaders are likely to take aim at Iran nuclear deal, drawing world’s attention to the threat posed by Tehran, writes The Guardian.

Trump, who has overtly been critical of the functioning of international organizations and particularly the U.N., will try to muster global support for tighter measures against North Korea, reports The Telegraph
