UN chief reiterates commitment to preventive diplomacy

United Nations, Nov 16 (Prensa Latina) The UN Secretary-General (UNSG) António Guterres on Tuesday emphasized that preventive diplomacy does not always get the attention it really deserves, partly because it is hard to measure when it succeeds.

In his speech to the Un Security Council, Guterres laid stress on the need to be fully supported by UN and all member states in conflict prevention efforts.

Likewise, Guterres said, we urge a better integration of preventive diplomacy and risk assessment into UN decision-making.

According to Guterres, preventing conflicts requires closing development gaps, reducing inequality and bringing hope to people around the world.

Ultimately, preventive diplomacy is about stopping wars before they break out.

These gaps are potential sources of violence and even conflict, the UN chief stressed, closing them can help stabilize societies and reduce inequalities.

That is why, it is so important to address different drivers of conflict, including poverty, inequalities and climate change, he stressed.

In this regard, Guterres considered that much more should be done in order to unite humanitarian, peace and development efforts.
