Donald Trump expected to rebuke states enabling North Korea in debut speech to UN - latest news
Antonio Guterres begins speaking to UN General Assembly Donald Trump to make debut address around 10am (3pm BST) US president expected to rebuke states that have enabled Pyongyang Trump pledges to 'Make the United Nations great' Elected on the nationalist slogan "America first," President Donald Trump will use his debut address to the UN General Assembly to argue that individual nations should act in their own self-interest, yet rally together when faced with a common threat such as North Korea. Mr Trump, who has warned of "fire and fury" if North Korea does not back down, was expected to argue on Tuesday that the dangers posed by Kim Jong-un's pursuit of a nuclear weapons program should unite all nations. And he planned to issue not just warnings to North Korea but also rebukes to states that have enabled Pyongyang, though it was unclear if he would criticise China by name. Addressing the general assembly is a milestone moment for any president, but one particularly significant for Mr Trump, a relative newcomer to foreign policy who has at times rattled the international community with his unpredictability. Big day at the United Nations - many good things, and some tricky ones, happening. We have a great team. Big speech at 10:00 A.M.? Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 19, 2017 He has pulled the Unites States out of multinational agreements, considered shrinking the US military footprint in the world and deployed bombastic language on North Korea that has been criticized by other world leaders. Mr Trump frequently belittled the UN as a candidate, and some within his White House believe the UN acts as a global bureaucracy that infringes on the sovereignty of individual countries. But the president was expected to stand before world leaders and a global audience and declare that UN members, acting as a collection of self-interested nations, should unite to confront global dangers, according to aides previewing his speech. Beyond North Korea, crisis points the Republican president planned to address include Iran's nuclear agenda, the instability in Venezuela and the fight against terrorism in Syria and elsewhere. World leaders, many of whom will be seeing Mr Trump in person for the first time, are bound to take the measure of the man and parse his every word for clues on how he views the US role in the world and within the UN. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump shake hands before a meeting at the Palace Hotel during the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly on September 18, 2017 Credit: AFP Mr Trump tipped his hand on Monday as he riffed on his campaign slogan when asked to preview his central message to the general assembly: "I think the main message is 'make the United Nations great' - not 'again.' 'Make the United Nations great.'" "Such tremendous potential, and I think we'll be able to do this," he added. In brief remarks to the UN on Monday, Mr Trump chastised the world body's bloated bureaucracy and budget, saying, "We are not seeing the results in line with this investment." But even with that scolding, Mr Trump pledged to the UN that the United States would be "partners in your work" to make the organization a more effective force for world peace. He praised the UN's early steps toward change and made no threats to withdraw US support. While running for office, Mr Trump had labeled the UN weak and incompetent. He has suggested it was "not a friend" to the United States or democracy while deriding it as "a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time." 2:37PM Guterres: "Multilateralism is more important than ever" Guterres closes, to rapturous applause. His main themes were nuclear weapons, climate change and the importance of multilateralism.

Donald Trump is expected to voice concern about Iran, which aides say he considers in violation of the spirit of a 2015 deal negotiated by his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, and aimed at containing Iran's nuclear program. "Theirs is a shared menace and nations cannot be bystanders to history and if we don?t confront the threats now, they will only gather force and become more formidable," a senior White House official, briefing reporters on the contents of the speech, said of Iran. United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres meets with Iran's President Hassan Rouhani during a bilateral meeting at the United Nations on September 18, 2017 Credit: Kevin Hagen/Getty Images Mr Trump has set US-Iran relations on a far more confrontational path than the detente Iranian President Hassan Rouhani enjoyed with Obama. Mr Trump's rhetoric against Iran, coming as he appears to be leaning against recertifying the nuclear deal by a mid-October deadline, prompted a retort from Mr Rouhani on Monday. Mr Rouhani told CNN that exiting the Iran nuclear deal "would carry a high cost for the United States of America, and I do not believe Americans would be willing to pay such a high cost for something that will be useless for them." 12:49PM Fun facts: Front row for North Korea, beef for lunch It's been dubbed the Super Bowl of diplomacy, the Oscars of world statesmanship: the UN General Assembly kicks off on Tuesday with US President Donald Trump in the spotlight as he makes his first address to the 193-nation body. Here are a few fun facts about this year's gathering, from AFP: Who's coming? There are 90 heads of state, five vice presidents, 39 heads of government, three deputy prime ministers and 52 ministers. At the rostrum for the first time will be Trump as well as France's Emmanuel Macron and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who has been in the top job for nine months. Gambia's Adama Barrow is making his international debut after trouncing long-serving leader Yahya Jammeh. Among the heavy hitters are Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and British Prime Minister Theresa May. North Korea gets front-row seat As luck would have it, North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong-Ho is getting a front-row seat at this year's General Assembly, sitting to the right of the rostrum. Every year, the name of a country gets pulled out of a box to determine the alphabetical order of the seating arrangement. This year's winner was the Czech Republic, which means the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, as North Korea is formally known, got the second seat in the front row. Beef and potatoes for lunch Are UN cooks pandering to Trump's love of meat? One glance at the menu for the state luncheon on Tuesday and the question does comes to mind. World leaders will enjoy pan-seared Japanese Wagyu beef tenderloin, Yukon gold potatoes, roasted asparagus and baby carrots. The starters include roasted chanterelle mushrooms, haricots and grilled stone fruit served on a bed of lettuce. The power lunch in a UN meeting hall will be crowned with a selection of chocolate mousses, fresh raspberries and passion fruit coulis. A French Sancerre wine will be served at the start, followed by a California Cabernet Sauvignon and - in a nod to Guterres' native land - there will be a 40-year-old porto from Portugal on offer at the end. Trump will be seated next to Guterres during the luncheon. Also at the table will be Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Swiss President Doris Leuthard, Ecuador's Lenin Moreno, South Korea's Moon Jae-In, King Abdullah II of Jordan, Liberia's Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Recep Tayyip Erdogan from Turkey, Dalia Grybauskaite of Lithuania and Alpha Conde of Guinea. New York traffic mayhem For New Yorkers, the annual week-long UN General Assembly means traffic chaos as thousands of police are deployed and streets are shut down to make way for presidential motorcades. Hotel prices are also at a premium. Trump is staying at his Manhattan Trump Tower, which means that area is on lockdown. 12:39PM What happened when Donald Trump met Boris Johnson at the UN? Donald Trump made his maiden visit to the United Nations on Monday, arriving at what he described as "just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time" - and making a beeline for Boris Johnson. Mr Trump hosted an event on Monday morning to discuss reform of the 72-year-old institution. Boris Johnson and Donald Trump meet for first time in public 00:38 Walking to the stage at the front of the chamber, he shook hands and exchanged words with several representatives of the 120 countries who had signed a pledge supporting reform, and were therefore entitled to attend. But when he saw Mr Johnson he stopped and greeted him warmly. Mr Johnson engaged the president in animated conversation, which at one point led to Mr Trump shooting the Foreign Secretary a quizzical look.
