UN Chief Warns World Cannot Afford Another War Amid U.S.-Iran tensions
Amid U.S.-Iran tensions United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said he would continue his active engagement to de-escalate tensions and avert full-scale war, which the “world cannot afford.” Guterres said it is “our common duty to make every effort to avoid a war in the Gulf that the world cannot afford. We must not forget the terrible human suffering caused by war. As always, ordinary people pay the highest price,” Guterres said.
Guterres stressed in a tweet that Peace is our most precious value. It is the product of hard work and we must never take it for granted. He said he is encouraged by signs that the escalating conflict in the Gulf may be subsiding. The world cannot afford another war.
