Riyadh Urges The World to Direct Investments Towards Health

Saudi Arabia underlined its commitment and efforts to promote international values, the rule of law,

and non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, during a virtual ceremony organized by UN General Assembly President Tijjani Muhammad-Bande to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Charter.

“We reaffirm our collective commitment to the Charter and to attest to our cooperation to achieve global goals. The Charter is what binds us together under the umbrella of the United Nations, an organization to which humanity has linked its aspirations. The strongest common denominator is our humanity, regardless of race, doctrine, or color; this is the strongest and noblest bond that can unite us and we must uphold these principles to reach our common goals,”

Saudi Arabia’s permanent ambassador to the UN, Abdallah Al-Muallimi, told the conference.

He noted that the world needed peace and security more than ever to overcome challenges, calling for the UN’s role to be strengthened to help combat them successfully.

“The COVID-19 pandemic, with hundreds of thousands of victims, millions of affected cases, has paralyzed the world in many areas and proven to us that dialogue, cooperation and fluid communication are the most fruitful ways to address the most complex problems that face our world,” the Saudi ambassador said.

He also emphasized that the early perception and coordination between countries “could have minimized the impact of this pandemic.”

“Perhaps the gravity of this pandemic will be the catalyst for us to strengthen the role of pluralism and to direct our investments toward health instead of weapons and war. The COVID-19 pandemic should be utilized us an opportunity to review global policies that have fallen short of producing results,” he remarked.
