PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has told the summit of world leaders that Zambia needs support of all its cooperating partners for it to effectively implement Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The President is concerned that no progress has been made on the reform of the United Nations (UN) Security Council, almost 40 years after the issue was put on the agenda.
Addressing the UN General Assembly’s 73rd session on Tuesday, Mr Lungu said in its pursuit of development goals that resonate with SDGs, Zambia needs the support of all its partners.
“While we pursue these goals, we are mindful of the challenges in financing development, as well as the declining resources and official development assistance, especially to countries in special situations.
