UN Chief asks countries in conflicts to ceasefire

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.”
