NEW YORK (HOL) – Somalia’s ambassador to the UN Abukar Osman Baale has been elected Vice President of the UN General Assembly.
Baale is among 21 Vice Presidents for the 75th session of the UN General Assembly.
Somalia has held similar position three times with the last being 1986.
The election of Baale to deputise the UN General Assembly President is a major diplomatic for Somalia as it reestablishes itself in the global arena.
Turkish diplomat Volkan Vozir was elected this month as President of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly.
