The secretary general of the United Nations calls for unity in his year-end address

ADVERTISEMENT

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. I call for unity – our future depends on it. <a href="https://t.co/fWtTa1irM3">pic.twitter.com/fWtTa1irM3</a></p>&mdash; António Guterres (@antonioguterres) <a href="https://twitter.com/antonioguterres/status/947406982071193601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">December 31, 2017</a></blockquote>
