Storyline


Officials of the United Nations called for international cooperation to jointly battle the COVID-19 pandemic at the closing session of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.

Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, president of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, declared the annual session to be closed on Tuesday, and passed the baton to the next president of the assembly, Volkan Bozkir.

Wrapping a year of his chairmanship of the UN Body, Muhammad-Bande from Nigeria said, "This is a moment of reckoning for our shared planet and future. This is a time for action, ambition, equality, inclusion, and partnership."

In his address at the closing session, the president called for multilateral cooperation to contain the virus that has already caused serious damage worldwide.

The President of the 75th session will be Volkan Bozkir, a Turkish diplomat. Taking the oath of office, Bozkir said, "it is our responsibility to strengthen people's faith in multilateral cooperation and international institutions, with the UN at their center."

"We need to continue a frank, transparent and results-oriented dialog about what went wrong in our efforts to contain the virus and what we have to do to avoid a similar situation in the future," Bozkir said. "We will also need to ask and answer questions about how COVID-19 vaccines can be distributed fairly and equitably. This is not just a question of health and economics, but of ethics in the most profound way."
