Statement Summary

VINCENT BIRUTA, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Rwanda, said that the world needs a strong United Nations and effective collaboration to meet global challenges, especially those highlighted by the COVID‑19 pandemic.  Stressing the need for cooperation towards good global governance for present and future generations, he expressed support for the Secretary-General’s reforms to make the Organization more efficient in its action, more transparent in its management and more responsive to crises.  Multilateralism must include a strong African voice, he added, so the world can work together to solve challenges even during uncertain times.
