Multilateralism answer to world’s “Trust Deficit Disorder”

On Tuesday, the Secretary-General addressed the General Assembly ahead of its 73rd general debate and warned that “multilateralism is under fire precisely when we need it most”.  The Secretary-General concentrated his remarks on “two epochal challenges which, since last year, have taken on surpassing urgency: climate change and the new risks associated with advances in technology.” He emphasized that our “future rests on solidarity” and that we must “repair broken trust”, “reinvigorate our multilateral project” and uphold dignity for one and for all.
