UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned world leaders.


UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned world leaders against war with North Korea, calling on them to take the threat of nuclear peril seriously.

His message on fiery rhetoric was implicitly directed at North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, but also at the United States and President Donald Trump, who later¬†¬†warned of “totally destroying North Korea if it does not back down.

The UN Security Council has unanimously imposed nine rounds of sanctions against North Korea since 2006 and Guterres appealed for the 15-member body to maintain its unity on Pyongyang.
