His Excellency Mr. Alessandro Mancini II and Her Excellency Ms. Grazia Zafferani I

Statement Summary

GRAZIA ZAFFERANI, Captains Regent of San Marino, welcoming the adoption of the Anniversary Declaration, said the COVID‑19 pandemic has created not only a public health emergency, but also an unprecedented economic and social crisis. Calling for a global response based on greater solidarity and effective multilateral action, she added that the international community must strengthen the United Nations in order to build bridges and implement durable solutions to global risks.  A small country committed to the principles of peace, dialogue, inclusiveness and solidarity, San Marino attaches great importance to the role of multilateralism.  Further, she said, to invest in the legitimacy and strength of the United Nations is to invest in the shared agenda of the international community.
