UN Chief Urges Int’l Solidarity to Respond To Coronavirus Pandemic

NEW YORK: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has decried the lack of international cooperation in tackling the still out-of-control coronavirus.

Briefing the UN Security Council via video link, Antonio Guterres called for strengthening multilateralism and building trust among the countries to combat the pandemic.

Terming the tiny microscopic virus as a number one threat, he blamed a lack of global preparedness, cooperation, unity and solidarity for the international community’s failure.

U.N. Secretary-General said as countries go in different directions, the virus goes in every direction.
