President of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), Volkan Bozkir, said on Wednesday that the effects of corruption are "detrimental to all of society" and it should not be allowed to continue unchecked.

"We cannot pretend that there were no issues before the COVID-19 pandemic," said Bozkir.
