UNITED NATIONS (OBSERVATORY) – The Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, stated that international relations in the world had once again returned to the state of the “cold war”.
In his speech at the meeting of the UN Security Council, António Guterres noted that the difference between the new “cold war” – in the absence of any real channels, between the countries, which would prevent further aggravation of the situation.
“The situation in the Middle East is in chaos – to the extent that it has become a threat to peace and security on the planet – we see a real Gordian knot – the fault lines cross each other, creating a very unstable situation involving the risks of escalation, division and division, which have serious regional and global consequences.We see a lot of discrepancies.
This situation resembles a “cold war”. More precisely, it does not just remind us that the “cold war” has returned with a vengeance, but with differences. The protective mechanisms that used to control the risks of escalation have no longer exist today.”
