The United Nations Security Council is due to adopt a resolution by virtual vote Wednesday, urging countries taking a hostile role to concentrate the Covid-19 virus, according to a draft resolution seen by CNN.
Nearly four months after the World Health Organization declared the global pandemic coronavirus on March 11, this is the first action by the UN wing tasked with protecting international peace and security. The council has been denounced for its lack of agreement on any action since more than 10 million people contracted the virus and various wars continued for several months.
A heated dispute between China and the US has been stalled for months. The United States did not want any mention of the WHO and China was furious when the United States insisted on blaming Beijing for the virus in the early months of negotiations.
There is no WHO threat in the final resolution of the project. The resolution calls for a “general and immediate cessation of hostility in all situations on its agenda and supports the efforts made by the Secretary-General.”
He says a ceasefire of at least 90 days will help “allow safe, unhindered and sustained delivery of humanitarian assistance” during coronavirus outbreaks. The fight against ISIS and terrorism in Iraq is free.
Despite more than 100 countries agreeing with the goal, the UN has acknowledged the impact of the call by UN Secretary-General António Guterres for a ceasefire because the virus has not had an impact dramatic.
The vote is being held over a two-day period and will be carried out practically because of the closure of the council chamber months ago when the fire broke out.
The results will be read after 11:30 pm on Wednesday.
