President of the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Tijjani Muhammad-Bande on Monday lauded China's great achievements in eradicating poverty and urged the global community to defend multilateralism. For China, "to have poverty eradicated 10 years ahead is really a very important achievement," said the UNGA president in a video-link interview with Xinhua the day before finishing his one-year term. Poverty eradication is the first goal among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were agreed upon by all countries in 2015.
