UN chief calls for ‘year of healing’ in 2021

NEW YORK, 29 Dec (FENA/dpa) – UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called for 2021 to be a “year of healing” in his New Year’s message on Monday.

“Both climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic are crises that can only be addressed by everyone together – as part of a transition to an inclusive and sustainable future,” Guterres said in a video message.

The most important goal of the United Nations in the coming year is to build a global coalition for carbon neutrality with net zero emissions by 2050, he said.
