The Secretary-General of the United Nations – Mr. Antonio Guterres has warned the world about an impending risk of it getting separated in two fronts, one could be led by the United States of America and the other by China.


Guterres apprised the world leaders present at the UN General Assembly's gathering of heads of State and Government on Tuesday, that both the countries were in a position of creating rival internets, currency, trade, financial rules and their own zero-sum geopolitical & military strategies.


He further said that “the risk may not yet be large, but it is real.”


He conveyed his concerns over the issue of the world becoming a disquiet place and stated that:


We must do everything possible to avert the great fracture and maintain a universal system, a universal ecomony with universal respect for international law; a multi-polar world with strong multi-lateral institutions.”


While addressing heads from UN’s 136 member states, Guterres opined about the threat of Climate Crisis and warned about the alarming possibility of armed conflict in the Gulf with the increase of spreading terrorism, rising populism, and exploding inequality.


The Secretary-General went to state that “we are living in a world of disquiet,” and “a great many people fear getting trampled, thwarted, left behind. Machines take their jobs. Traffickers take their dignity. Demagogues take their rights. Warlords take their lives. Fossil fuels take their future.”


Guterres also mentioned people had not lost hope and still believed in the spirit and ideas of the United Nations and its foundation of multilateralism, of all countries working together.


The United Nations Organization which was established with a motive of creating a multilateral world has struggled in the face of increasing unilateralism by the United States of America and other nations that favor going it on their own.


The UN has been time and again addressing the issues of Climate Change and Ominous state of peace and security in the world to draw the attention of nations at the said issues on a global level.


The General Assembly session of UN this year will conclude on September 30.
