In his opening remarks, the UN’s top chief, António Guterres, said that the world was in peril, and geo-political divides were undermining international law, trust in democratic institutions, and all forms of international cooperation

“We cannot go on like this,” Guterres said. “We have a duty to act. And yet we are gridlocked in colossal global dysfunction.”

In remarks that pivoted between alarm and hope, the secretary general made demands for collective action

He warned of a world burning because of climate change and said the U.N. charter and the ideals it presents are in jeopardy, alluding to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the inequalities that have exploded as food and energy prices rise

“Let’s have no illusions. We are in rough seas,” Guterres said in one of the most candid speeches he has ever delivered to world leaders

He identified three areas where he said leaders should come together, namely — peace and security, the climate crisis, and addressing inequality in developing countries

The war in Ukraine, Guterres said, has unleashed widespread destruction with massive violations of human rights and international humanitarian law

Every UN member has been invited to send a delegation to the assembly and each member state is allowed an equal vote when deciding on resolutions
