The U.N. Secretary General says the new outbreak could lead to new conflicts

According to the associated press, UN Secretary General Guterres warned on the 12th of local time that the outbreak of the new epidemic not only threatens the achievements of global poverty alleviation and peace building, but also may aggravate existing conflicts and trigger new ones, according to the associated press and UN news. Guterres told the Security Council that on March 23, he called for an immediate cease-fire from all sides of the world in response to the epidemic, which led some warring parties to gradually demote or stop fighting, “but it is regrettable that in many cases, the epidemic has not prompted all parties to cease their hostile actions or agree to a permanent cease-fire.” Ban Ki Moon, the former Secretary General of the United Nations, said it is shocking that the world has banned billions of people, closed borders and suspended trade, but it has failed to shelve conflicts.
