At a time of unprecedented humanitarian needs, global partnership and solidarity are more important than ever before. Next week’s Summit in Istanbul provides us with a unique opportunity to strengthen our global humanitarian response. As the Secretary General states in his report for the Summit – this is One Humanity, and it is a Shared Responsibility. For all of us.
As humanitarian and development partners we will continue to provide support for those in need, and to work towards a stronger, more effective and more inclusive global humanitarian response system, as well as to continue to promote International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law.
In view of this, Sweden and Brazil have both decided to support all the core commitments proposed for the Summit in Istanbul. We would encourage other Member States to consider doing the same, SwedishGovernment says in a statement.
