Today started the 77th United Nations General Assembly with a speech by António Guterres, the UN Secretary General. “There is a battle that we have to end, our suicidal war against nature,” the politician told the world’s leaders, adding that “today’s hottest summer may be tomorrow’s coolest summer.”
The war in Ukraine, climate change and nuclear disarmament will be the issues that will mark the work agenda of this United Nations General Assemblywhich is going through one of the most important periods of European political instability since the end of the cold war. According to Guterres, this meeting occurs “at a time of great danger” because the world is “blinded by war, battered by climate chaos, wounded by hate and ashamed of poverty, hunger and inequity.”.

It is almost certain that the situation in Ukraine will take all the focus of action because it is the first important act of war in Europe since the Balkan war, after the separation from Yugoslavia. Nevertheless, from the UN they are not very positive about the fact that the situation can be solved in a simple way, since “there is a long way to go” to reach the conditions for peace.

But despite that, he has a busy schedule of activities that was put together by the Argentine ambassador to the United States, Jorge Argüello.
Yesterday, he met with the director of the IMF, Kristalina Georgieva, at the New York consulate where they spoke, according to the president himself, of the “negative influence that the current international context has on Argentina.” In addition, he led a speech at the CAF and spoke of the importance of working together for the growth of the region.
