UN repeats call for worldwide ceasefire including LoC
The United Nations has repeated its call for a ceasefire in world’s conflict zones including at the Line-of-Control (LoC) in the disputed Jammu and Kashmir area.
A spokesman to UN Secretary General, Stephane Dujarric said that Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ recent appeal for a ceasefire in world’s conflict zones also applies to the Line of Control in the disputed state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Earlier on April 3, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday improved his call for a global ceasefire.
Guterres urges all parties to conflict to lay down arms and allow war-torn nations to combat the coronavirus outbreak.
The UN chief said, in a virtual press conference, “We know the pandemic is having profound social, economic and political consequences, including relating to international peace and security.”
He told reporters, “Religious leaders – including Pope Francis – have added their moral voice in support of a global ceasefire, as have citizens through grassroots mobilization online.”
Today’s threats – from #COVID19 to the climate crisis – require a global response through multilateral cooperation.
