  • GLOBALink | 75 countries including China call for global solidarity for vaccine equity

    UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 4 (Xinhua) -- Some 75 countries, including China, on Friday called for global solidarity for vaccine equity at the General Debate of the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly.

    The pandemic knows no borders. The only solution lies in global solidarity, unity and multilateral cooperation, said the countries in a joint statement.

    "We call on all states and stakeholders to strengthen solidarity and international cooperation to contain, mitigate and overcome the pandemic and its consequences, ensure protection for those most affected, including women, children, youth, the older persons and persons with disabilities, and take measures to counter misinformation, disinformation, stigmatization, racism and xenophobia," said the statement, read by Zhang Jun, China's permanent representative to the United Nations.

    The joint statement recognizes the need to begin treating the COVID-19 vaccine as a global public good for health. It commends the contributions made by relevant countries and platforms such as Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator and its vaccine pillar, the COVAX facility, for promoting vaccine accessibility and affordability through bilateral and multilateral channels.

    However, vaccine equity is still far from being reached. The progress on vaccine roll-out has been widely uneven and unfair. Many countries, in particular the developing world, still lack adequate access to available and affordable vaccines, said the statement.

    "We are also worried by disturbing trend of vaccine nationalism and stockpiling of vaccine doses beyond need. In that regard, we welcome the World Health Organization's call to prioritize vaccinating the people most at-risk around the world who are yet to receive their first dose."

    The joint statement calls on all states and relevant stakeholders to step up coordinated and concerted efforts for fair and equitable distribution of vaccines in developing countries. It also calls on capable vaccine-producing countries to translate their commitments into action and ensure timely and adequate delivery of vaccine support to receiving countries.

    The joint statement encourages support to the ACT Accelerator and COVAX and calls on international financial institutions and other international organizations to provide financial support for vaccine procurement and for strengthening production capabilities in developing countries.

    It welcomes the efforts of civil society, the private sector, academia and all relevant stakeholders in vaccine research, production and delivery, and calls on all states and all stakeholders to strengthen global solidarity and jointly promote the fair, affordable, equitable, timely and universal distribution and strengthen local production of vaccines around the world.

    The Resolution that was cosponsored by 48 states was adopted unanimously.  The head of MFA congratulated the President of Turkmenistan with the external policy achievement and underlined that the adoption by the UN General Assembly of this Resolution initiated by the head of state serves yet as one more proof of thoughtful approach of the state to the issues of strengthening international transport cooperation with the aim of sustainable development that is particularly consonant with the international and regional efforts on overcoming the pandemic, its economic and social repercussions.      

    The given Resolution enriched the sequence of Resolutions in the area of sustaining collaboration between all modes of transport adopted in 2014, 2015 and 2017 upon the initiative of Turkmenistan. It was stated that the principles embedded in the Resolution are coherent with the process of establishing multifaceted system of transport communication launched upon the outcomes of the First UN Global Conference on Sustainable Transport that was held in Ashgabat in November 2016.
