Nations worldwide should take swift action to stem the deadly coronavirus pandemic, Turkey’s president urged on Thursday.
Axar.az reports that, it was announced by Turkish media.
"I invite all countries to participate in the fair fight against this global health crisis until all humanity breathes a sigh of relief," President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told fellow world leaders at an extraordinary G20 summit on the virus, which he like all the other leaders attended via a video link.
Erdogan said the countries must "act immediately" as they did during the 2008-2009 global financial crisis, according to presidential sources.
"No country has the luxury of implementing protectionist, unilateral policies,” said Erdogan, according to the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
He said the G20 bloc countries must guide, take responsibility, and show global cooperation in the fight against the pandemic.
