UN Security Council Adopts Ceasefire Resolution Amid Pandemic

NEW YORK – The UN Security Council, in a videoconference meeting on July 1, announced its decision to adopt a resolution expressing its support for the Secretary-General’s call for a global ceasefire, which it issued in March to help unite efforts to fight COVID-19 in most vulnerable countries.
The UN Security Council yesterday unanimously adopted a resolution calling for a 90-day global ceasefire as the coronavirus pandemic continues worldwide.
In the resolution, the UN Security Council called on “all parties to armed conflict to immediately participate in a lasting humanitarian pause for at least 90 consecutive days,” as many countries struggle to contain the new coronavirus.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres praised the idea of a global ceasefire in March as a way to help joint efforts against the virus outbreak in the most vulnerable countries. But it took the Council more than three months to adopt the resolution, due in part to disagreements between the United States and China.
The proposed ceasefire “will enable the safe, unhindered and sustained delivery of humanitarian assistance,” said the Security Council.
However, the ceasefire resolution does not apply to some military operations such as those against the Islamic State in Iraq, the Security Council said.
The Council requested the Secretary-General to help ensure that all relevant parts of the United Nations system, including country teams, accelerate their response to the COVID-19 pandemic with an emphasis on countries in need, including those in situations of armed conflict or affected by humanitarian crises.
The 15-member body also requested the Secretary-General to provide updates on the Organization’s efforts to address coronavirus in countries facing situations of armed conflict or affected by humanitarian crises, As well as the impact of COVID-19 on the ability of peacekeeping, special political operations and missions to fulfill their mandatory priority tasks.
