Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, April 24, 2020 – Croatia is a strong advocate of multilateralism whose importance has been confirmed during the novel coronavirus epidemic, the Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs said on Friday on International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace, marked April 24.

The UN General Assembly decided in December 2018 to declare 24 April as the International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace.

Croatia joined the Alliance for Multilateralism in 2019 which was launched by Germany and France.

“There are numerous issues and challenges that countries around the world need to approach jointly, like climate change, sustainable development, geo-political tensions, international terrorism, hybrid threats and the like,” the ministry said in a press release.

“The current COVID-19 epidemic undoubtedly points out the importance of jointly facing an exceptional complex phenomenon through multalateralism and diplomatic efforts,” the ministry said in its press release.

Official Zagreb considers that it is necessary to work together on advancing mechanisms in international organisations particularly the United Nations, in an effort to improve their efficiency and to secure collective health, well-being, security and development.
