(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 30 – Italian Premier Mario Draghi is among
the leaders to have signed an appeal calling on nations to work
together towards a new international treaty for pandemic
preparedness and response .
    The appeal was published by several newspapers around the world
and was also signed by World Health Organization Director
General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, European Council President
Charles Michel and the leaders of Britain, France and Germany,
among others.
    “There will be other pandemics and other major health
emergencies. No single government or multilateral agency can
address this threat alone,” it said.
    “The question is not if, but when.
    “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 co-operation that extends beyond
this crisis”. (ANSA).
