Ban Ki-Moon Urges World to Resist Unilateralism in Post-Pandemic Global Governance

SEOUL, South Korea – Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Monday at a post-pandemic global governance forum that countries should abandon doubts and mistrust of globalization and international organizations.
Such suspicions have hampered the global effort to tackle crises like the coronavirus pandemic, Ban said via a video link to the Lanting Forum on International Order and Global Governance in the Post-Covid-19 Era held in Beijing.
Wang Yi warns of unilateralism and protectionism in the post-epidemic era.
Referring to the United States, Ban said that a specific developed country put its interests ahead of those of international issues, which not only led to a rise in unilateralism but also undermined international rules.
He called on countries to support multilateralism and UN-led efforts in the area of global economic recovery and reform of the global health system.
Former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, who also spoke at the forum, expressed concerns about the current affairs of China and the United States. He called on the two countries to maintain stable bilateral relations, as it is about world peace and stability.
Earlier, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi warned that countries should be careful in decision-making when the world is at a critical juncture and battling Covid-19.
During the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly, the international community reached a consensus that the United Nations is still the most comprehensive platform of the global system; multilateralism remains the cornerstone of the current international order, solidarity and cooperation is the only way out of the pandemic, Wang said in a keynote address.
