Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. On September 7, Chairman of the State Great Khural (Parliament) Mr. Zandanshatar addressed at the interactive general debate titled ‘The global response to the COVID-19 pandemic challenges multilateralism’s ability to deliver for the people,' organized as part of the ‘5th World Conference of Speakers of Parliament’ (5WCSP) in Vienna, Austria.

In his speech, Mr. Zandanshatar noted that the COVAX Facility is greatly contributing to the development, production and equal access to COVID-19 testing, treatment and vaccines, which is a clear evidence of the effectiveness of multilateral cooperation. “As the difficulties caused by the pandemic persist, the countries will become unable to overcome these challenges alone, therefore it is necessary to co-work closely to find a common solution through multilateral mechanism,” stressed Mr. Zandanshatar.

The 5WCSP brought together representatives from more than 110 countries. In the debate, heads of delegates from 15 countries, including Russia, South Korea, Japan, India, Afghanistan and Montenegro, delivered speeches, expressing their positions.

The same day, Chairman G. Zandanshatar, together with MPs D. Togtokhsuren and D. Ganbat, attended the general debate ‘Countering misinformation and hate speech on and offline requires stronger regulations’.
