On the same day, David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Programme, who also briefed the Security Council, said that during his just concluded trip to Central America, he personally felt how the conflict had "fuelled" the already serious hunger crisis. He also said that "we are facing a global emergency of unprecedented scale" under the threat of multiple famines that may break out in the world.

Bisley also pointed out that since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, "the wave of hunger has become a tsunami"; At present, 345 million people in 82 countries are in a serious state of food insecurity, a record number more than 2.5 times the number before the beginning of the COVID-19.

With the fierce conflict pushing millions of innocent civilians to the edge of hunger and famine, Bisley asked the Security Council to "show the humanitarian leadership that the world urgently needs", so as to break the vicious circle of hunger and conflict.
