UN World Leaders To Make Efforts To Address Global Challenges

Collective action within UN framework needed to tackle global challenges

Ahead of the high-level meetings of the UN scheduled for Monday, the international community expects world leaders to make collective efforts to address global challenges.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the UN which finds itself standing at another juncture in human history given rising unilateralism and protectionism, reports Xinhua news agency.

“As we mark the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations, it is clear that the world has high expectations of us, as the main platform for multilateralism and cooperation on a rules-based international system,” Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said at the opening of the first plenary meeting of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) on Saturdy.

On Monday, UN member states are expected to adopt a declaration, reaffirming their commitments to a reinvigorated multilateralism.

In his opening remarks at the UNGA meeting, Volkan Bozkir, president of the 75th session of the UNGA, said “the context in which we are working serves to remind us of the necessity of the multilateral system and inspires us all to make use of the UN Charter to address our collective challenges”, in reference to the Covid-19 pandemic.
