Azerbaijan suggests establishing a new UN High-Level Panel for Global Recovery after COVID-19. The statement came from Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev during the general debate of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, Azerbaijani media writes.
He said that in order to call international attention to this challenge, Azerbaijan, on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement, initiated a resolution on ensuring equitable and universal access for all countries to vaccines in the UN Human Rights Council which was unanimously adopted this March.
"Azerbaijan plans to initiate a resolution at the UN General Assembly on the same topic during this session.
We believe that there is a need to take strong, cohesive, and targeted global actions to recover better from the COVID-19. In this regard, we suggest establishing a UN High-Level Panel on Global Recovery from the COVID-19, which could prepare recommendations on global measures for the post-pandemic period," President Ilham Aliyev noted.
