Guterres calls for ‘doubling the efforts to implement global ceasefire’
The UN Secretary-General told all the members to make a sharp appeal for the efforts to implement a ceasefire in their respective regions for world peace.
United Nations: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called on all member states to intensify efforts to achieve the goal of implementing a global ceasefire. United Nations spokesman Stephen Dzork gave this information in a statement released on Wednesday.
‘The Secretary-General called for all members to intensify efforts to implement a cease-fire in their respective regions for world peace,’ the spokesman said.
Earlier, the UN Security Council had unanimously passed a resolution urging all countries to process the global ceasefire. This is done with the idea of focusing on the ongoing fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.
According to the resolution, the Security Council has appealed to all parties worldwide to implement a global ceasefire for at least 90 days on humanitarian grounds with immediate effect. The Security Council said that during this crisis there is a need to focus on the ongoing fight against Covid-19.
This resolution clearly stated that military operations against terrorist organizations will continue. The list of the Security Council includes, in addition to the Islamic State, military operations against al-Qaeda and al-Nusra Front, etc.
This proposal was introduced by France and Tunisia. The proposal has been pending since April due to a lack of agreement between the US and China on the role of the World Health Organization (WHO) on Covid-19.
