The UN “General Debate” kicks off at 11 am today.  Notable speeches this morning include Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad–who is always certain to suck up media attention. His speech should occur sometime around noon or so. The UK comes shortly after Iran. Probably circa 12:30 or 1–depending, of course, on how long Mr. Ahmadinejad decides to speak.  The afternoon sessions begin at 3 and includes Turkey, which has taken on an outsized role in  middle east politics of late. That speech will probably be the most consequential in terms of ongoing UN debates on Syria and Palestine.  If I had to guess, I’d say Turkey’s speech will be around 6pm tonight.

The UN does a good job of collecting and sorting all the speeches at the end of each day on its General Debate page. Or, you can just watch live via webcast below.
