Guterres wants ‘no bullshit’ climate summit

-

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will announce a climate summit next year, condemning violence against demonstrators in Iran and hoping for peace in Ukraine by 2023.


The growing gap between the rich and the poor, inequitable distribution, war and the climate crisis: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres addressed the pressing issues of our time in his annual report. At the annual press conference at UN headquarters in New York, he assessed the situation this Monday at the end of the year.

The main theme of Guterre’s introductory report was above all the fight against climate change. In September next year, the government announced it would hold a “nonsense” climate summit with leaders from business, civil society groups and the financial sector.

Conditions of participation: no greenwashing, no blame and no further setbacks. Instead: a persuasive will to take “new, concrete and credible” measures.

World Nature Conference as a positive example

The diagnosis of current climate protection efforts was – no surprise – quite sobering. The actual amount of greenhouse gas emissions is getting farther and farther away from what is needed to meet its own targets. In 2022, emissions reached record levels. “We’re still clearly heading in the wrong direction,” Guterres said.

1.5 degree target gasp.

But Guterres sees the adoption of a species conservation agreement at the World Nature Conference in Montréal, which, among other things, stipulates that 30 percent of land and water surfaces should be protected by nature by 2030. An example that may cause optimism about more ambitious international cooperation. W

Guterres does not expect peace in Ukraine immediately

“I am not optimistic that we will have effective peace talks in the near future,” said the Secretary General of Russia’s nine-month war of aggression in Ukraine. But he strongly hopes that peace can be achieved in 2023.

Guterres said the suffering of the Ukrainian people, Russian society and the world economy are reasons to do everything possible to reach an agreement before the end of next year. Every effort should be made against the background of international law and the UN Charter, the fundamental principle of which is respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity.

“mass human rights violations” in Iran

Guterres also denounced the human rights situation in Iran, especially because it is one of its key problems: gender-based violence and injustice against women.

“How Iran is responding to the protests is absolutely unacceptable,” Guterres said, before talking about “mass human rights violations”.

Guterres wants universal rules for social media

The discussion about Twitter boss Elon Musk was also on the agenda at the conference. When asked what it would take for him to delete his Twitter account, Guterres gave an evasive answer. He doesn’t think this is the right way at the moment. Rather, there should be clearer and more universally applicable rules for social media in the future.

Because: For example, while journalistic media are legally responsible for what they publish, social media platforms are still almost completely exempt from legal liability, Guterres criticized.

Guteress sees great danger from the far right

The UN Secretary-General considers far-rightism, neo-Nazism and those who still believe in the racist lie of white supremacy as the greatest terrorist threat to Western democracies. The uncovered Pusch plans of so-called Reich citizens in Germany are an example of this.

Warning to Israel

Guterres also expressed his concern about the possibility of forming an extreme right-wing government in Israel under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the November elections.

“It is very important that the entire international community make it clear to the government in Israel that there is no alternative to the two-state solution and that no unilateral action should be taken that would jeopardize the two-state solution,” Guterres said. .
