UN Security Council to hold first COVID-19 talks on Thursday


The UN Security Council is expected to hold its first meeting on the coronavirus pandemic on Thursday,  diplomats have told AFP news agency.     


"Meeting confirmed for Thursday," one diplomat told AFP news agency on condition of anonymity. It was to be held behind closed doors at 3 pm (19:00 GMT).


Nine of the 10 non-permanent members formally requested a meeting with a presentation by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, last week.


Last week, the UN General Assembly adopted by consensus a resolution calling for "international cooperation" and "multilateralism" in the fight against COVID-19 - the first text to come out of the world body since the outbreak began.
