UN chief: World faces ‘existential threats,’ fragilities

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is warning global leaders that the world not only faces a COVID-19 emergency and the worst economic crisis in nearly a century. Guterres said Monday the globe will also have to confront “existential threats” to the climate and biodiversity. He said it also faces the possibility of the largest economies, the United States and China, splitting the world in two. He told the World Economic Forum’s virtual meeting Monday there are many fragilities in today’s world which must be addressed in 2021 to “put the world back on track” including lack of consensus on using cyberspace and the growing risks of nuclear and chemical proliferation.last_img
