UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged G20 leaders to «make bold pledges» and fulfil their promise to overcome the pandemic, as he gave remarks in a pre-recorded video from London, on Saturday.
«The G20 committed in March to do whatever it takes to overcome the pandemic and protect lives and livelihoods. As we meet this weekend, we must hold ourselves to account for that promise,» Johnson said.
«I'm calling on my fellow leaders at the G20 to make bold pledges and harness our collective ingenuity and resources to defeat the pandemic and protect our planet and our future for generations, « he added.
Saudi Arabia is hosting the G20 which will run through Sunday. The summit is held virtually with most of the head of states unable to attend due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
