The event was attended by Ambassador Permanent Representative of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea to the United Nations, Anatolio Ndong Mba, as a sign of expression of satisfaction expressed by the Equato-Guinean government for the successful stage of work that has constituted the seventy-first sessions that concluded on the eve of the 72nd edition.

The event served as an occasion for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to congratulate the work carried out by Peter Thompson during his one-year term, noting as one of the highlights during that period the high-level meeting of the Assembly General on the major movements of refugees and migrants, leading to the adoption of the New York Declaration, among other important events such as the Oceans Conference held in June of this year or the implementation of the Development Agenda Sustainable face to year 2030.

The Closing of the 71st session, according to the former Portuguese Prime Minister, conveys a great sense of spiritual unity with which the organization of 193 member states must continue working, as it coincides with the 16th anniversary of the terrorist barbarism that "horrendous" attack on the World Trade Center of New York and other objectives, where unfortunately several member countries of the United Nations lost their citizens, has lamented in painful tone the chief of staff who works under the auspices of the body created in 1945.
