General Assembly President highlights volatile international systemListen /
The world is experiencing unprecedented global interdependence, according to UN General Assembly President Vuk Jeremić.
Addressing the annual gathering of world leaders in New York on Tuesday, he said the international system is becoming both more volatile and unpredictable.
The General Assembly President warned about some of the dangers that the world is facing today.
"In our era, capabilities once thought to be exclusively in the hands of states—such as the ability to inflict harm on a massive scale—could become more easily accessible to non-state actors. As the world becomes de facto smaller, countries have come to feel more exposed. We must find a way to act in concert, so the legitimate needs and concerns of Member States can be adequately met."

Jeremić, 37, who was elected General Assembly President in June, is the former Foreign Minister of Serbia.
