Meanwhile, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday called for an unified Security Council for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and also felt the need of multilateralism.
“What we would like to see is … a strong, unified voice for de-escalation, for a cessation of hostilities and a push to get the parties back on track to find a political solution to this conflict that has been going on and on and on,” asked the spokesperson of Guterres, Stephane Dujarric over the issue. Telling that Guterres is very much concerned about multilateralism he said, “as we’ve seen it during the pandemic and as we`ve seen it in other aspects.”
“We would like to see member states put to action the ideals that we all have to live up to within this organization,” he added.
As to the Security Council, he said the more bound together the council is, the more grounded its voice and the more grounded its effect.
