During the meeting, Shoukry is scheduled to deliver two speeches across two sessions.

In addition to the formal sessions, the visit will encompass a series of bilateral meetings with the foreign ministers of participating nations. The discussions will center on strengthening bilateral relations and cooperation, as well as exchanging perspectives on pivotal international and regional issues. Of particular concern will be the ongoing war in the Gaza Strip and the endeavors to enhance the delivery of humanitarian aid to the affected region.
