UN summit to speak about post-pandemic global governance – world news


Niger, the current president of the UN Security Council, said Tuesday it is going to organize a September 24 videoconference between heads of state to speak about the way forward for global governance following the coronavirus pandemic.

The summit will debate “post-Covid-19 global governance relating to the maintenance of international peace and security,” Niger’s UN Ambassador Abdou Abarry told journalists while presenting the Council’s program for the month.

The session will take place all over the once a year UN General Meeting gathering of world leaders, which will take place this year chiefly by videoconference because of the pandemic.

“This will be an possibility for our leaders to have political discussions on the want to adapt the current international system embodied by the United Nations and the Security Council so as to effectively face traditional threats to security such as conflicts, but also new threats such as organized crime and pandemics,” Abarry said.

Niger’s President Mahamadou Issoufou will chair the summit, with participation by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and African Union chairman Moussa Faki Mahamat, Abarry said.

When asked approximately the attendance of US President Donald Trump, who frequently opposes multilateralism and cooperation with international organizations, the ambassador said “we expect the participation of all heads of state and they’re going to all receive a call for participation from the president of Niger.”
