Borrell: We cannot take multilateralism for granted

European Union High Representative Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell stressed on Monday the importance of multilateralism for global peace in the "unprecedented times" such as the coronavirus pandemic but warned it could "no longer" be taken "for granted" as "some are even trying to weaken it or ignore it."

Speaking of the forthcoming 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Borrell noted the bloc is aware "that a global system based on international law, on cooperation and partnership, is the best guarantee for peace and safety for all."

The EU recently accused the United Kingdom of breaking the principles of multilateralism after London proposed changes to the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement through the Internal Market Bill.
