UN Secretary-General Guterres echoes PM Imran by backing virus debt relief for developing countries

NEW YORK: United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday supported Prime Minister Imran Khan’s call for a global initiative for debt relief to developing countries, saying such a measure must be an “important part” of the response to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world.

“The prime minister’s initiative is in the same spirit as the secretary-general’s own position,” the UN chief’s spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said in response to a question from APP at the virtual news briefing.
