Heiko Maas, German Foreign Minister, announced that his country will seize the opportunity of its rotating presidency of the United Nations Security Council to push for a resolution on the Coruna virus pandemic.
Mas blamed the United Nations' highest body for not having decided yet to respond to this global crisis, which he described as "evidence of deficits."
Mas added: "The Security Council cannot stand silent, while the whole world is dealing with such a pandemic."
Germany is to assume the rotating presidency of the Security Council for a month, starting next July.
A dispute between the United States and China over the role of the World Health Organization has hindered a Security Council resolution on the Corona pandemic.
US President Donald Trump accused the World Health Organization of favoring China.
