Leaders Call For New World Order After Pandemic

By Stefan J. Bos, Chief International Correspondent Worthy News

(Worthy News) – More than 20 world leaders want all nations to unite under a new global settlement saying it is the only way to prevent future pandemics and stamp out nationalism. They made the appeal Tuesday in an open letter published in Britain’s the Daily Telegraph and publications such as Le Monde in France and El Pais in Spain.

The 24 leaders, including France’s Emmanuel Macron, Britain’s Boris Johnson, and Germany’s Angela Merkel, want a cross-border treaty similar to that reached after World War Two. “At that time, following the devastation of two world wars, political leaders came together to forge the multilateral system.”

The signatories, such as the head of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, added: “The aims were clear: To bring countries together, to dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism. And to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and cooperation – namely peace, prosperity, health, and security.”

Cooperating in that “spirit” would help the world to “be better prepared to predict, prevent, detect, assess and effectively respond to pandemics in a highly coordinated fashion,” they wrote. “The Covid-19 pandemic has been a stark and painful reminder that nobody is safe until everyone is safe. At a time when Covid-19 has exploited our weaknesses and divisions, we must seize this opportunity and come together as a global community for peaceful cooperation that extends beyond this crisis.”

In Europe, critics, such as outspoken Dutch commentator Robert Jensen, said the plan would lead to a new world government. Leaders of the United States, China, and Russia did not sign the letter, but WHO chief Tedros was optimistic they would be included in discussions on a global settlement treaty. He told reporters in Geneva that comments from the U.S. and China were already “actually positive.” And, he said, “When the discussion on the pandemic treaty starts, all member states will be represented.”

Tedros and other leaders stressed that a new treaty would establish better systems for alerting people about potential pandemics. It would also “improve” the sharing of data and distribution of vaccines and personal protective equipment. “There will be other pandemics and other major health emergencies. No single government or multilateral agency can address this threat alone. The question is not if, but when.”
