“It is absolutely necessary to change the rules of the game of the financial reports of the world.

STORYLINE
UN Secretary-General António Guterres said, “the security crisis in the Sahel poses a global threat,” adding that “a coordinated international breakthrough is urgently needed.”

Speaking at a High-Level Meeting on the Sahel today (22 Sep) in New York, Guterres said that the situation is urgent in the Sahel. Insecurity and political instability in the region continue to make an already catastrophic humanitarian situation even worse.

He called for “a renewal of collective efforts to promote democratic governance and restore constitutional order throughout the region,” adding that “the rule of law and full respect for human rights are indispensable for ensuring security and sustainable development.”

Climate disruption continues to cause soil erosion and the drying-up of water sources, thereby contributing to acute food insecurity and exacerbating tensions between farmers and herders, Guterres said.

He noted that against a global backdrop of turmoil on energy, food and financial markets, the region is threatened by a systemic debt crisis that is likely to have repercussions throughout the continent.

The UN chief said, “it is absolutely necessary to change the rules of the game of the financial reports of the world. These rules of the game are today completely against the interests of developing countries, and in particular the interests of African countries, with debt problems, with liquidity problems, with inflation problems, with instability, necessarily posed by this profound injustice in international financial and economic relations.”

With regard to Mali, a comprehensive review of the role of MINUSMA is under way, at the request of the Security Council, Guterres said.

In the light of changes in the country and the challenges that persist despite collective efforts, new solutions must be found, and he will be making proposals in that regard over coming months.
