Jamaica on Saturday called for "coordinated international action" to meet the needs for developing countries in the midst of "multiples crises."

Addressing the annual debate of the UN General Assembly, Jamaican Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Kenneth Baugh made the appeal on behalf of developing countries saying, "it is the poorest and the most vulnerable, however, who are disproportionately affected, and who are least capable of responding."

Voicing grave concern on the "bleak" future for developing countries, Baugh cited the focal point of the economic downturn on the issue of debt servicing and debit servicing.

"The pervasiveness of the crisis makes it imperative that coordinated international action is taken," he said.

Placing the responsibility on the UN, he said, "It can ensure dialogue and enable a coordinated response based on an inclusive decision-making process."

In his push for UN reform, he said global challenges, such as climate change, nuclear disarmament and nuclear non-proliferation, public health and the economic and financial crisis "can only be confronted through international cooperation and effective partnerships."

"This can only be achieved through greater multilateralism with equitable participation by all countries, both developed and developing," he added.
