GERMANY - President Steinmeier Calls for Global Alliance on Coronavirus

Arno Froese

In an opinion for a British newspaper, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and four other world leaders have pleaded for global cooperation. Rapid testing and vaccines for vulnerable populations are key, they write.

“There cannot be victory over the virus in one, or some, countries alone. We all have something to contribute regardless of the size of our economies or populations. A global solution is in everybody’s self-interest,” Steinmeier wrote, along with King Abdullah II of Jordan and Presidents Halimah Yacob of Singapore, Sahle-Work Zewde of Ethiopia and Lenin Moreno Garces of Ecuador.

“Enhanced cooperation and solidarity” rather than “geopolitical turf battles” and pooling scientific research are “the most convincing way” to fight the pandemic, the leaders wrote.

The heads of state wrote that a future alliance should focus on four key objectives, including the development of vaccines. Once developed, these should also be used to protect everyone, including vulnerable groups such as refugees.

The future alliance would also ensure “fair and equitable distribution of testing kits and critical medical equipment for all.”

The alliance would also “articulate the immense benefits of a coordinated, cooperative global response to the crisis.”, 1 April 2020

Arno's commentary

Here we have it: “cooperative global response.” This is a shot in the arm for globalism. The world is racing toward its goal: global unity at any costs. This unity requires, as the articles says, “fair and equitable distribution…for all.” 

Indeed, the world’s intellectuals think they are in charge and can solve any and all problems. This will be true for a short period, when the epitome of evil is exposed: Antichrist and his false prophet. It becomes clear that anyone and any nation not participating will be greatly disadvantaged—all will have to contribute, all will benefit, and in the end, all will worship the image of the beast.
