United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres has issued a so-called red alert to the world.

Speaking in his year-end address, the former Portuguese prime minister warned of deepening conflicts and raised anxieties about nuclear weapons.

After a year on the job, he said that the world had "gone in reverse."

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">As we begin 2018, I am issuing a red alert for our world.
