STORYLINE:

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said the COVID-19 pandemic is a reminder that “the United Nations system must be reformed according to today's threats and needs.”

In a pre-recorded message to a high-level event on the global pandemic, Erdoğan said the international community is facing the “greatest global challenge of the 21st century,” and stressed that the key to overcoming “this difficult period is international cooperation and global solidarity.” He expressed his belief that the General Assembly “must be strengthened to make the United Nations system more effective, democratic, equitable and transparent.”

The Turkish President said his country has acted in cooperation with the international community in the beginning of the outbreak and provided assistance to 156 countries and 9 international organizations. He added that one of Turkey’s 16 vaccine research studies has entered the phase of human trials.

Erdoğan noted that Turkey’s strong agriculture, food and manufacturing sectors, health sector and comprehensive social security system are its most significant assets in combating COVID-19. He added, “There are vulnerable groups all over the world, who are affected much more in this period. The measures must be inclusive, and attention must be paid to the needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups.”
