With a lot of propaganda exaggeration and a little impact on the ground, the emergency G20 summit, chaired by the Kingdom, took place two days ago amid an open attempt by the Al Saud regime to exploit the event politically.
The Saudi regime called for the G20 global summit to claim autism in the face of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but the goal of the system was completely contrary to that, according to what was issued in the final statement of the summit held online.
Observers agree that the shape of the new world order is no longer based on blocs, but rather on individualism, which is what we witnessed in Europe in particular, after the virus shattered the existing bonds between the countries of the Union that have fallen into themselves to try to survive on their own.
The Saudi regime invitation was an attempt to use the coronavirus pandemic to improve the image and appear as an international pioneer, after its external relations were destroyed in the wake of the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
It is noteworthy that the regime’s invitation to the summit was in conjunction with the indictment issued by the Turkish Public Prosecution against the persons involved in the assassination of Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, as if it were an attempt to cover up the matter, using as usual the generous financial offers, which come today under the title of facing coronavirus.
The spread of the pandemic was supposed to stop the ongoing wars, including the Yemen war, and put all political conflicts and their backgrounds aside, at least until a cure or vaccine is reached for this virus that “threatens humanity”, according to the United Nations.
However, this also did not happen, but the pandemic was suitable for many to take advantage of the weaknesses of opponents and to pounce on them, taking advantage of the preoccupation of states themselves and their internal situation.
Perhaps the most prominent title that dominated the G20 summit, the declaration of more than 220 civil society organizations from all over the world boycotting the summit in protest against the black human rights record of the Saudi regime.
The boycott organizations expressed their concerns about civil society organizations’ engagement at the G20 Summit in the Kingdom for 2020.
The organizations pledged not to participate in this year’s summit, known as the “G20 Civil Society” or “C20”, devoted to civil society meetings within the G20.
The organizations said they would not help the Saudi regime wash its bleak human rights record by hosting the G20 events.
