UNGA President Csaba Korosi arrives in India on three-day visit

New Delhi, Jan 29 (IANS): United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) President Csaba Korosi arrived in India on Sunday on a three-day visit.

During the visit, Korosi will be holding talks with External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar on key multilateral and regional issues of mutual interest, a statement issued by the External Affairs Ministry said.

Korosi's visit to India is being seen as an opportunity to exchange views on global challenges that the United Nations is currently seized with.
