United Nations, Sep 5: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would address the United Nations General assembly on September 28, according to the latest provisional list of speakers released by the UN.
As per the previous provisional list, the Prime Minister was scheduled to speak a day earlier on September 27.
The changes are believed to have been made to accommodate Singh's schedule to meet US President Barack Obama.

After his meeting with Obama, Singh is likely to leave Washington for New York the same evening.
Pakistan's new Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would address the UN General Assembly on September 27. This would be his first address to the world body in his second term.
In fact Sharif would be addressing the General Assembly at a time when Obama would hold meetings with Singh.

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksha is scheduled to address the assembly in the same session as that of Obama.
