CHINA: During his UNGA address, President Xi Jinping said his country would stop funding coal projects overseas, reducing a key source of pollution behind climate change.

He also reiterated that China aims to provide two billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to the world by the end of the year.

TURKEY: Turkeys Cavusoglu reiterated that his country would continue to cooperate with the US on Afghanistan and strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries.
