Two-state solution remains the 'only way forward — United Nations chief

Two-state solution remains the 'only way forward — United Nations chief”

He also said France won't "close any door to dialogue" with North Korea and that it would be "a grave error" to unwind the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran as it faces strong criticism from U.S.

To tackle the challenges of nuclear peril, climate change, and ongoing conflicts, he said, the United Nations has launched initiatives to reform itself. "We must not sleepwalk our way into war".

"We can only address those challenges through multilateralism", he said, "not through survival of the fittest".

Trump told leaders that the United States seeks harmony and friendship, not conflict and strife on the world stage, but he warned that nobody should take advantage of America.

US President Donald Trump, who has threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" unless it changes course, will be in the spotlight on Tuesday when he delivers his maiden address. "We have allowed the idea to proliferate that multilateralism is a kind of game, a game for diplomats sitting around a table", he said, but have come up short on addressing such major threats as climate change.

"We must not sleepwalk our way into war", he said.Guterres again called on Myanmar to halt its military campaign against Rohingya Muslims, just hours after Aung San Suu Kyi delivered a nationwide address that failed to quell an global outcry.

With tensions escalating over North Korea's continued nuclear and ballistic missile testing in a bid to give it the ability to target the United States with a powerful, nuclear-tipped missile, Trump has warned of USA military action.

"Only political solutions can bring peace to the unresolved conflicts in Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, the Sahel, Afghanistan and elsewhere". "This is a time for statesmanship", he stressed.

The U.N. chief went on to outline seven key threats facing the world, and the major challenges to resolving them: the risk of nuclear conflict, worldwide terrorism, unresolved conflicts and violations of global humanitarian law, climate change, rising inequality, cybersecurity, and the refugee crisis.

"Today proliferation is creating unimaginable danger, and disarmament is paralyzed", Guterres said in NY. "We need to be a world at peace", he said, later tweeting that "only together, as truly United Nations, can we build a peaceful world".

UN Secretary General António Guterres on Tuesday opened his first General Assembly speech with a call to renew steps toward a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

But Temer said it needs reform, particularly expanding the powerful Security Council to align it with the reality of the 21st century. Brazil is part of a group with Germany, India and Japan seeking permanent seats on the council.

More than 420,000 Rohingya have been forced to flee violence in Myanmar's northern Rakhine state in what the United Nations has described as "ethnic cleansing".

He called for the United Nations and humanitarian agencies to be allowed access to Rakhine to offer aid.

In Myanmar's capital of Naypyitaw, leader Aung San Suu Kyi defended the government earlier in the day and said her country does not fear global scrutiny. She invited diplomats to see some areas for themselves.

In his speech, which touched upon a number of hot-button issues around the globe, Guterres also called for stronger worldwide cooperation to combat terrorism, saying that while "terrorism can never be justified", countries must "do more to address the roots of radicalization including real and perceived injustices".
