UN General Assembly adopted a resolution on unity in the fight against coronavirus

41

The UN General Assembly created a resolution on global solidarity in the fight against coronavirus disease. It was adopted by consensus; no vote was taken.


This was reported by the press service of the General Assembly.

The document calls on all countries to strengthen international cooperation in order to contain the pandemic, mitigate its effects and defeat it. This requires a comprehensive exchange of knowledge, experience and other information. The resolution also calls for adherence to the recommendations of the World Health Organization.

The text of the document emphasizes the leading role of the UN in overcoming the crisis and calls on the Secretary-General of the United Nations to join the coordination of international efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreover, the resolution does not say anything about easing or lifting sanctions, or about curtailing or suspending armed conflicts.

The initiators of this document were Norway, Switzerland, Ghana, Singapore, Indonesia and Liechtenstein. In addition, another 188 countries of the world became co-sponsors of the resolution.

          In this UN, there has long been a hollow chatter. Non-binding good (at best) wishes.

      A modest such position is absolutely decisive and has long lost its authority. smile

          Now, if Russia was to blame for something, then such a howl would rise immediately.

          The howl rises even when Russia is not guilty of anything at all, so to speak, not in a dream. Just out of nowhere, on command from the State Department. I would not be surprised if some of the "most democratic", under the guise of the coronavirus, manage to solder some other sanctions to Russia. They will find a reason, such as the wrong help, or the masks of the wrong system, something else. In general, they will find a reason, as always.

        On the other hand, when the pandemic subsides, they will ascribe Italy's help to themselves, and the photos of our Ruslans that delivered cargo to the United States will be painted in the colors of the UN.

      Now I understand why people are striving for legislative structures. In the morning - accepted in the first reading. We ate, chatted. Adopted in the second reading. They sang in chorus. Then they accepted in the third reading - and crawled away. To be treated. What is not life?

    the role of the United Nations, to run errands in the usa.
    the leading role in overcoming the epidemic is carried out by physicians of various states.

    This organization has recently come under complete subordination to the United States. And given the difficult situation in the States themselves, counting on something more serious than on the adoption of any resolutions there, I think, is hardly worth it ....

    resolution on global solidarity in the fight against coronavirus disease
    The General Assembly took a lot of things and ...? What kind of solidarity can one speak of in Europe and the United States if the pandemic has shown that in their world not only everyone is for himself, but also is trying to snatch (steal) from an ally neighbor, while not forgetting to shit those who he does not like. It is an empty matter to call spiders in the bank for solidarity.

    It is very similar to the resolution of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU since the end of "perestroika" (late 1980s). So, you see, they will grow up to "new thinking".

    The article does not reflect that the amendment on the inadmissibility of economic sanctions against any countries in the period of confronting the world problem (coronavirus). This amendment was proposed by Russia, China, Iran and a number of countries. But the amendment failed. Against the USA and all its minions. In the forefront, of course: Ukraine, Georgia, the Baltic states.

    The whole essence of the resolution boils down to one thing, to help the "developed" Western countries defeat the virus. Smart, nothing to say. Only one thing is not clear, what does the WHO have to do with it, with its recommendations, the sense of which is "zero"?

    The United States, Britain, Ukraine, Georgia and the EU representative to the UN have blocked the inclusion in the UNGA resolution of a clause on lifting economic sanctions from Iran, North Korea, Libya, northern and southern Sudan and other countries during a pandemic (proposed by the Russian Federation, China and 26 others countries of the world).

    In this regard, the Russian Federation, China and their 26 supporters have every right to impose 100% economic sanctions on the United States, Britain, Ukraine, Georgia and the EU countries during the pandemic, which will support the opinion of the representative of the union at the UN.

    The document calls on all countries to strengthen international cooperation in order to contain the pandemic, mitigate its effects and defeat it. This requires a comprehensive exchange of knowledge, experience and other information. The resolution also calls for adherence to the recommendations of the World Health Organization.

    Blah blah blah. Dummy, but the specifics are left to the virus-carrier countries themselves. According to the principle - let's fight the infection, and we will state how you do it in an environment of tougher sanctions.

    The United States lost 2 people in World War II. This is about 400 people a day.

    Ukraine for 2019 lost 272 thousand 297 people. This is 756 people a day from socio-economic disorder, without any coronavirus!

    3. The United States and EU countries block the UN resolution on lifting sanctions preventing countries from fighting the virus.
