*-- Trump to hold first U.N. reform meeting in NYC --*

President Donald Trump will participate in a meeting in New York City Monday about reforming the United Nations -- an issue the administration has been pushing for months.

The panel, titled "Reforming the UN: Management, Security, and Development," is scheduled to begin at 9:50 a.m. EDT Monday.

"One of President Trump's core objectives for U.S. participation in this year's meeting is to pursue reform at the United Nations, to ensure the organization is accountable to member states and is run more effectively and efficiently," the White House said in a statement Monday.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster said in an interview on Fox News Sunday that Trump will "communicate his vision for America's role in the world" in three areas: protecting American people, promoting American prosperity and promoting accountability and sovereignty."

Trump arrived in Manhattan Sunday night. This week, he will participate in a number of meetings with world leaders and representatives of about 120 nations.
