UN chief: Addressing global challenges impossible without multilateral approach

Challenges are global, and there is no way to address global challenges without a multilateral approach, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told CGTN’S World Insight host Tian Wei.Guterres is in Beijing to attend the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), which opened on Monday.On the complex dynamics of the international situation and the individual development of countries, Guterres said the UN must do everything it can, “to first of all, prevent conflicts, try to solve them, to be able to promote an agenda that was agreed by all countries in the world.”He noted that specific issues that should be addressed include the “Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, for inclusive development, for fair globalization, to fight against climate change, that [which] is the most dramatic threat to our life as a planet, and at the same time to promote human rights.”He also noted that inequities in the international system need to be addressed.”If something fair is not there, we need to do everything possible to mobilize the international community in order to be able to fill the gap that may exist.”He added that his hope lies with young people around the world, noting that “more young people [are] totally committed to cosmopolitan values. If you talk of the youth, the youth doesn’t like protectionism, the youth doesn’t like nationalism, the youth like to be the citizens of the world, they communicate everywhere, and this is my hope for the future. So we are having a hiccup at the moment, but we will overcome them.”

    Is the pale (chloride) horse riding in the guise of the world wide Green movement as supposed by social commentator Sheila Zilinsky? It appears with population reduction part of that agenda the word sustainable development may have a more sinister a ulterior motive. WWD proposes more wilderness areas to the deteriment of community development. Under Darwinian evolutionary doctrine man is no better the
    than an animal it ‘ s no wonder society has stooped to such a faithless response to global problems. What happened to the understanding of rains stopping due to apostasy and idolatry?
