Algeria, May 05, 2020 (SPS) - The President of the Republic of Algeria, HE, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, called on Monday for the United Nations Security Council to meet as soon as possible and adopt a resolution through which it officially calls for the immediate cessation of all hostilities in the world.

The President of Algeria, in a speech to the Virtual Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), invited the UN Security Council to "meet as soon as possible and adopt a resolution requesting officially the immediate cessation of all hostilities worldwide, especially in Libya, without neglecting the situation "in the territories under occupation, such as in Palestine and Western Sahara."

The Algerian president underscored the need to work to "give opportunity, where there were no conflicts, to all actors to work to confront the Covid-19 pandemic."

In this sense, the Algerian president proposed to develop an action plan to minimize the severity of the repercussions of the pandemic in developing countries, and Africa in particular.

Representatives from 15 states took part in the virtual Summit on Monday: Algeria, Azerbaijan, Cuba, Egypt, Iran, Jordan, Mauritania, Mauritius, Nepal, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Palestine, Turkmenistan, Venezuela and Vietnam.SPS
