Only through joint efforts will the countries of the world be able to withstand the coronavirus pandemic and future global challenges, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Only international solidarity and cooperation will help the world defeat the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, German Chancellor Angela Merkel believes.
вЂњOnly if we find global answers to this global threat, we have a chance to defeat the pandemics, today and in the future,вЂќ Merkel said in her weekly video message on Saturday, July 11th.
Germany actively participates in international cooperation programs aimed at combating the pandemic. First of all, these are the programs of international organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, the head of the German government said. In addition, Germany is very active in health and research, including advocating for the equitable distribution of vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics worldwide, she added.
According to Angela Merkel, many countries demonstrate вЂњa willingness to meet these challenges togetherвЂќ and this gives her hope. Earlier, on July 8, Merkel called on European countries to strengthen their sense of solidarity during their speech in the European Parliament on the occasion of the start of GermanyвЂ™s EU presidency.
