Finland urges int’l community to take action for medical treatment of COVID-19

Tehran, June 1, IRNA - Finland's Director of Crisis Management Initiative (CMI) Ville Brummer underlined the need to take an international action to reduce losses and finding a treatment for COVID-19.

Brummer made the remarks in response to letter of Saied Reza Ameli, Secretary of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution Islamic Republic of Iran to religious and social leaders of world.

“Thank you for your letter dated 16.4.2020. Indeed, the global COVID-19 pandemic has hit hard many nations and calls for global action to mitigate and eventually find a cure for this disease,” the letter reads.

“As a conflict resolution organization, we are fully aware of the additional burden that this global pandemic poses on the living conditions of societies suffering from armed conflict,” Brummer said.

“The international community through its relevant mechanisms ought to multiply efforts for safeguarding multilateral institutions, and work towards greater complementarity between humanitarian, development and peacebuilding efforts,” he added.

“While the COVID-19 pandemic poses great challenges, it can also be an opportunity for greater cooperation among nations despite political disagreements,” he added.

“The Middle East is certainly a region that needs enhanced cooperation frameworks, to fulfill the aspirations of the people of the region for peace and prosperity.”

According to its official website, the Crisis Management Initiative (CMI) is an independent Finnish organisation that works to prevent and resolve violent conflicts through informal dialogue and mediation. Nobel Peace laureate and former President of Finland Martti Ahtisaari founded CMI in 2000. Since then, our organisation has grown to become one of the leaders in its field.
