Highlights of the fifth day of the General Debate of the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly
The Prime Minister of Haiti today called on leaders to adopt a compassionate approach to migration, as the United Nations General Assembly continued its high-level debate.  "Many countries which are prosperous today have been built through successive waves of migrants and refugees," said Prime Minister Ariel Henry. "The issue of migrants must remind us that human beings, fathers and mothers are always going to flee poverty and conflicts and will always strive to offer a. better living standard for their children."  Climate change, Islamophobia and security were among the topics addressed by leaders as the General Assembly continued its annual high-level session, which runs through 27 September.
