New Secretary General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres has promised to reorganize the world body and called on the Security Council to adopt a new approach in order to prevent conflicts and promote peace. Guterres, who succeeded Ban Ki-moon on January 1, has underlined the need for tackling international crises like the war in Syria. Foreign factions infiltrated into Egypt, Libya and Syria and caused the so-called “popular uprisings” to pursue the West’s policy of “resource management” in the Middle East and North Africa, Igan told Press TV’s Top 5 on Wednesday. Most of “these wars are unnecessary and the United Nations needs to really look a little bit deeper at this to see where these wars are actually coming from,” he argued. Also pointing to the hands behind the war in Syria, he said that the conflict has been instigated by foreign mercenaries funded by the West.
