The debate, which will be held in virtual format, is expected to be chaired by President of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta who assumes the rotating Presidency of the United Nations Security Council in October 2021.

October’s annual high-level debate will be the first since the re-elections of the UN Secretary-General and the Chairperson of the AU Commission. Therefore, it could provide an opportunity for the Secretary-General and the Chairperson of the AU Commission to reaffirm their commitments to the Joint UN-AU Framework for Enhanced Partnership in Peace and Security, signed in 2017./.
