President of the United Nations General Assembly expresses gratitude to Azerbaijan

President of the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly Tijjani Muhammad Bande has expressed gratitude to Azerbaijan for its initiative on holding a special session of the UN in the field of fight against coronavirus, ONA reports citing UN website.

"The proposal to hold a special session on the pandemic by the General Assembly is a veritable platform to mobilise global commitment against the pandemic.

We thank Azerbaijan, as Chair of NAM (Non-Aligned Movement), for pushing for this very important session and the General Assembly for accepting to hold the special session.

The co-facilitators with your cooperation and support, have produced a solid draft as a good basis for negotiation. And I trust that the special session will ensure greater involvement of world leaders toward a result-oriented response to the pandemic. This will further strengthen the General Assembly as a critical global partner in the fight against the pandemic and its impact on lives and livelihood. 

Indeed, I trust that this special session will be a vehicle for a coordinated response from the international community", reads the statement.
