Global health risks, such as pandemics and epidemics, can become a threat to international peace and security. Striking examples of epidemics turning into global health risks include the epidemics of severe acute respiratory syndrome, HIV/AIDS and Ebola virus disease. In the case of Ebola, the Security Council determined in its resolution 2177 (2014) that the outbreak constituted a threat to international peace and security and undermined the stability of the most affected countries, possibly leading to further instances of civil unrest, social tensions and the deterioration of the political and security climate. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, with more than 400,000 victims to date, has become a global public health emergency and has challenged global cooperation, including in the framework of the United Nations. So far, the most immediate impact of COVID-19 on conflict settings has been a deterioration of the humanitarian situation. For instance, in Yemen, the virus is spreading throughout the country and overwhelming an already failing health-care system. In addition, ongoing ceasefire negotiations of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen are further complicated owing to the uncoordinated response to the outbreak. In the mid and long term, there is reason to be concerned about the far-reaching economic and social consequences of COVID-19, which are likely to have an impact on political stability in many countries. The pandemic is in fact exacerbating root causes of armed conflict: unemployment, inequalities, social stigma and distrust in State institutions. These are all strong possible indicators of emerging or prolonged violence. The meeting will be chaired by Heiko Maas, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Germany. The following speakers have been invited to give briefings: • António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations • Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross • Amira Elfadil Mohammed Elfadil, Commissioner for Social Affairs of the African Union Announcement of outcome of the votes in connection with COVID-19 pandemic - Security Council Open VTC. http://webtv.un.org/watch/announcement-of-outcome-of-the-votes-in-connection-with covid-19-pandemic-security-council-open-vtc/6168605132001 Announcement of outcome of the votes in connection with COVID-19 pandemic. video6168605132001 Wed, 01 Jul 2020 16:32:07 +0000 6168605132001 172800 Announcement of outcome of the votes in connection with COVID-19 pandemic.

(S/2020/531) Extract from the Ninth report of the Secretary-General on the Implementation of Security Council resolution 2231 (2015) quotThe Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, concluded on 14 July 2015, was the result of 12 years of intense diplomacy and dialogue. The Plan was subsequently endorsed by the Security Council in its resolution 2231 (2015), in which the Council called upon all Member States, regional organizations and international organizations to support the implementation thereof. Since then, the international community has expressed strong support for the Plan. The Plan is a testament to the efficacy of multilateralism and is a success in nuclear non-proliferation. It remains the best way to ensure the exclusively peaceful nature of the nuclear programme of the Islamic Republic of Iran and secure tangible economic benefits for the Iranian people. It is essential that the Plan continue to work for all its participants, and that issues not directly related to the Plan be addressed without prejudice to preserving the agreement and its accomplishments.quot (S/2020/508) Letter dated 5 June 2020 from the Security Council Facilitator for the implementation of resolution 2231 (2015) addressed to the President of the Security Council.
