The premier will be accompanied by Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar and Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb, and senior officials.

On September 20, the premier would attend a reception to be hosted by United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
