Balanced News: U.N. General Assembly opens with world in crisis — and key leaders absent

Our 'quick read' news summary

The U.N. General Assembly has opened with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warning of the poison of war infecting the world. The meeting comes as the world faces numerous challenges, including violent conflicts, climate disasters, record temperatures, and a surge in migrants and asylum seekers. However, key leaders from the U.N. Security Council’s permanent members, Britain, France, Russia, and China, are absent. The absence of these leaders and the competition between the U.S. and China for allies in the “Global South” have undermined the U.N.’s ability to address pressing global problems. The primary focus of this year’s assembly will be the Russian invasion of Ukraine and forced displacement of people globally.
