King Abdullah II of Jordan has stressed the need to counter the global humanitarian and economic implications of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, especially its impact on food security, poverty, unemployment and education.

The Jordanian leader made his remarks on Saturday while participating as a guest of honour in the virtual 15th Group of 20 (G20) Leaders' Summit at the invitation of King of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, reports Xinhua news agency.

In an address at the event, the Jordanian king urged action to ensure the efficient and equitable distribution of Covid-19 vaccines to be available to all.

He added that Jordan's pharmaceutical sector can contribute to mass production and distribution efforts.

The King stressed the need to protect vulnerable communities worldwide, including refugees and families living in poverty, from the repercussions of the global health crisis.
