Miley Cyrus to Pedro Sánchez: “We need your leadership”
16 June 2020 @ 18:53

SINGER Miley Cyrus has called on Spanish president Pedro Sánchez to join a Global Citizen scheme to help ensure full access to Covid-19 diagnoses, treatment and eventual vaccinations everywhere on the planet, and he has agreed to attend a meeting on June 27.

The artist behind Wrecking Ball and Nothing Breaks Like A Heart had a full conversation on Twitter with Spain's leader, starting on Saturday morning (Spanish time) when she tagged Sánchez in a tweet that read: “Spain, you united in solidarity with Black Lives Matter in the US. We must keep standing together to tackle #Covid19 and its disproportionate impact on marginalized communities, especially communities of color. Please join us, PM?”

She included the hashtag #GlobalGoalUnite.

Sánchez responded, in English – a language in which he is fluent – with: “Spain is coleader in initiatives such as the ACT-Accelerator to achieve equitable access to vaccines, treatment and diagnosis to fight #Covid19. Ours is a strong commitment, Miley. Unity and multilateral response is the only way forward not to let anyone behind.”

The reply from the daughter of Achy Breaky Heart singer Billy Ray Cyrus did not take long in appearing: “Thank you! Will you join us on June 27 for #GlobalGoalUnite to help close the funding gap for the most vulnerable? Testing, treatments, and vaccines for everyone everywhere...We need your leadership!”
