Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called for “access to the coronavirus vaccine for all” and told a G20 summit that the pandemic had increased “the responsibility and importance” of the organization.

Erdogan was addressing the G20 Leaders’ Summit with an introductory video message from his Vahdettin pavilion in Istanbul on Saturday.

Erdogan said the world, especially developed countries, “has not given a good test of solidarity” in the coronavirus pandemic.

Erdogan said it was impossible to deal with the pandemic without cooperation, adding that countries with weaker economies should not be left to their fate.

“The vaccines under development should be used for the common good of mankind instead of further exacerbating existing injustices,” he said.

“The G20 platform should prepare and implement the mechanisms that will ensure cost-effective and equitable access to the vaccine for all.

Saudi Arabia is hosting the virtual meeting of G20 leaders on Saturday and Sunday in accordance with coronavirus restrictions.

Erdogan calls for curbing fallout from pandemic

The decisions taken at this year’s G20 summit will prove decisive in global efforts to reduce the adverse effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and meet the world’s expectations of the bloc, Erdogan added.

“The decisions to be taken at the Riyadh summit will be decisive not only to mitigate the negative impacts of the pandemic, but also to meet the expectations of the G20,” Erdogan said in a video message.

Erdogan said: “The pandemic has also reminded us once again that we are part of the great family of humanity regardless of religion, language, region and race.”

Highlighting Turkey’s efforts, Erdogan said Ankara has provided assistance to 156 countries and nine international organizations amid the pandemic.
