United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged warring parties across the planet today down arms and support the fight against COVID-19.
He described the pandemic as the common enemy and a threat to all mankind.
Antonio Guterres has instructed the UN Secretary-General’s special envoys in every conflict zone to work for a global ceasefire.
This is ahead of a $2-billion appeal he’s making to stop the pandemic spreading into refugee camps caused by fighting around the world.
Libya is leading by example.
The UN-backed Government of National Accord and the Russian-backed rebels led by Khalifa Haftar have agreed to a ceasefire to allow the medics to fight CORONA 19.
Guterres said that he hoped the ceasefire would become immediate and permanent.
