German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for global cooperation to fight the coronavirus pandemic, saying, “The Covid-19 pandemic is just one example which shows that global problems call for understanding and cooperation beyond national borders and at all levels.”
Her comments came in a pre-recorded speech as she addressed the high-level meeting to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations.
Merkel also said that those who believe they can go it alone are mistaken, warning that the United Nations is only as effective as its member are united.
“Our wellbeing is something that we share – our suffering too. We are one world,” said Merkel.
The chancellor also repeated her push to add Germany to an expanded Security Council, saying reform is needed to solve the global challenges of the 21st century.
