The morning session of the UN General Assembly where Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to make his historic bid for unilateral Palestinian statehood has opened in New York.

Starting with Ghana, ten countries will take the podium before Abbas speaks. This including Iraq, the Czech Republic, Turkmenistan, El Salvador, Sri Lanka, Djibouti, Namibia, Armenia, and South Sudan.

Abbas will be followed by Japan and Bhutan. After that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will take the floor to urge world leaders to reject the unilateral bid and to only support a Palestinian state that is achieved through negotiations.
