Six years after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, there is still a deep gap between the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals and international commitments to support their implementation.

In a complex global political, social and economic context, exacerbated by the aftermath of COVID-19, access to external financing, special and differential treatment in trade matters and international cooperation are crucial for middle-income countries.

Mr. President,

We appreciate the convening of this meeting to discuss the Security Council Annual Report to the General Assembly of 2020, contained in document A/75/2.

Mr. President,

Twenty years after the Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS, inequalities in access to health not only persist, but in many nations they are increasing.
