UN Secretary-General António Guterres has no illusions about the possibility to reform the UN Security Council immediately.
The relevant statement was made by UN Secretary-General António Guterres at a joint briefing with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“I have not the power to reform the Security Council. I have no illusions about the possibility to do it immediately, but I will do everything I can through making the UN as effective as possible in situations like these to at least compensate for a failure that I cannot solve. And you can be sure about [our] total commitment to support Ukrainian people in this difficulty and to our permanent voice asking for the end of this war in respect for the international law and in respect for the Charter of the United Nations,” Guterres said.
In his words, the UN is not only the Security Council; the UN is also the General Assembly, which was clear in this regard. The UN are also men and women working in different parts of the world to support people that are victims of war and conflict, Guterres stressed.
