Antonio Guterres: Corona will increase armed conflict

UN forecast for Corona UN forecast for Corona

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates:-- The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, expected that the repercussions of the spread of the new Corona virus will be a tent, indicating that armed conflicts will increase around the world, given the economic stagnation that the pandemic will leave behind.

Antonio Guterres affirmed that the world is experiencing the worst crisis since the Second World War, and that two important elements that will aggravate conflicts and wars in the world.

The two components are:

- First, a disease that is a threat to everyone in the world.

- Second, an economic impact will lead to a recession that we may have never seen before.

He added: "The combination of these two elements and the risk of deep disturbances, increased violence and escalating conflicts make us believe that this is indeed the most difficult crisis that we face since the Second World War."

He continued that this crisis calls for solidarity from all mankind and put differences aside.

He said: "We need a stronger and more effective response that can only be achieved if we all stand together and forget political games and our awareness that the whole of humanity is at stake."

Guterres considered that the international community is far from achieving the required solidarity because all the measures that have been taken to date to confront the epidemic were taken by developed countries to protect their citizens and their economies.

He explained: "We are far from having a global package to help developing countries eradicate the disease and at the same time address its dire consequences for its population, for people who have lost their jobs, for small companies facing the risk of extinction, and for those who live outside the formal economy and who no longer have Any chance to stay. "

He added: "We are moving slowly in the right direction, but we need to push the pace and we need to do more if we want to defeat the virus and if we want to support the people in need."

The Secretary-General of the United Nations stressed that the world today "needs innovative financial tools" that enable developing countries to respond to this crisis.
