Content by: South-South News

2 January 2018, New York, USA | South-South News — In his New Year’s message, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres said “I am not issuing an appeal. I am issuing an alert – a red alert for our world.”

As we begin 2018, I call for unity. I truly believe we can make our world more safe and secure. We can settle conflicts, overcome hatred and defend shared values. But we can only do that together.

I urge leaders everywhere to make this New Year’s resolution: Narrow the gaps. Bridge the divides. Rebuild trust by bringing people together around common goals. Unity is the path. Our future depends on it. I wish you peace and health in 2018. Thank you. Shokran. Xie Xie. Merci. Spasiba. Gracias. Obrigado.”
