The United Nations is running out of money and has urged member states to pay what they owe the intergovernmental organisation, according to reports.Secretary-general Antonio Guterres sent a letter to the world body’s 193 member states warning that it had “never faced such a difficult cash flow situation this early in the calendar year” with the core UN budget at a $139m (£106m) deficit.“An organisation such as ours should not have to suffer repeated brushes with bankruptcy. But surely, the greater pain is felt by those we serve when we cannot, for want of modest funds, answer their call for help,” Mr Guterres wrote in letters seen by Reuters on Thursday.
