Guterres warns UN may not have money to pay staff next month

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The United Nations is suffering from its worse cash crisis in 10 years and is warning its operations around the world could be compromised.

A third of its member states have not been paid their share of the costs.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the organisation is in danger of defaulting on its payments, and might not be able to cover staff salaries next month.
