STORYLINE:

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, “There is a growing risk that the global economy will be divided into two parts, led by the two biggest economies – the United States and China.”

In his remarks to the 12th ASEAN-UN Summit yesterday (Nov 11) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Guterres said that geopolitical divides are contributing to global insecurity, triggering new conflicts and making it increasingly difficult to end old ones.

He continued, “A divided global economy, with two different sets of rules, two dominant currencies, two internets, and two conflicting strategies on artificial intelligence, would undermine the world's capacity to respond to the dramatic challenges we face. This decoupling must be avoided at all costs.”

He noted that ASEAN member states are particularly well-placed to help bridge it.

The UN chief stated, “We need to strengthen our collective efforts to find multilateral solutions, weather geopolitical storms, and get the SDGs back on track. Regional organizations, including ASEAN, have a vital role to play. “

On Myanmar, he said that the political, security, human rights, and humanitarian situation is “sliding ever deeper into catastrophe” and condemned the escalating levels of violence, the disproportionate use of force, and the appalling human rights situation in Myanmar.

He noted that indiscriminate attacks on civilians might constitute war crimes under international law and repeated his call on the Myanmar authorities to release all political prisoners and launch an inclusive process immediately to return to the democratic transition.

According to the UN Chief, this is the only route to lasting peace and security.

Guterres urged ASEAN countries to maintain open borders and provide protection and assistance to refugees from Myanmar.

He continued, “No refugee should be forced to return to suffering and danger. And I reiterate the need for urgent action by the Myanmar authorities to create conditions for the voluntary return of almost one million Rohingya refugees.”

On climate, he said, “Now is the time for a historic pact – a Climate Solidarity Pact – between developed and emerging economies. Developed and emerging economies must agree on a joint strategy to combine their capacities and resources for the benefit of humankind.”

Guterres commended those ASEAN countries already rising to the challenge and participating in multistakeholder partnerships to achieve a just transition to renewables.

He also said, “Greater climate ambition is needed from ASEAN, starting with the elimination of all new coal investments and the phasing out of coal power by 2030 for OECD countries, and 2040 for all others. “


He also said that the crisis in access to food, energy, and finance would be his top priority when I meet G20 leaders in Bali next week and will be pushing G20 leaders to adopt an SDG stimulus that will provide governments of the Global South with the investments and liquidity they need, and speed up debt relief and debt restructuring.


He concluded, “ASEAN has an essential role in advancing human rights, fundamental freedoms, and inclusive political participation as elements in building STRNG, stable and peaceful societies. And ASEAN has a key role to play in the development of a strong global economy worldwide."
