Macron urges G20 to help least-developed countries

French President Emmanuel Macron urged on Saturday the Group of 20 (G20) to create a system that would help least-developed nations in acquiring vaccines against COVID-19 and recovering the economic crisis caused by the pandemic.

The president noted the G20 countries had the means to devise "healthy technology against COVID-19" that should direct the first doses of jabs "toward the least-developed countries."

Macron stressed it was "in the DNA of our club to urgently forge effective multilateral solutions to crises" such as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which he described as a "test for the G20."
