The Prime Minister is leading a delegation to the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.
A key priority for the UK government at UNGA will be building broad-based support for the new Iraqi government and for international action to confront ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) and tackle Islamic extremism. Read about the UK government response to ISIL.
Alongside the Prime Minister, ministers from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Department of Energy and Climate Change and Department for International Development are attending UNGA.
There will be events and discussions about how the international community tackles the threat from ISIL and foreign fighters; as well as climate change, Ebola, the post-2015 development agenda and how we secure an EU-US trade deal.
