“We live in a world today in which peace is elusive and fragile. Violence is rampant in too many corners of the globe. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which is a violation of the Charter of the United Nations and international law, is causing massive suffering and devastation to the country and its people and comes on top of the worldwide economic dislocation triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

12. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“In a world that is tearing itself apart, we must heal divisions, prevent escalation and listen to grievances. Instead of bullets, we need diplomatic arsenals. This is what is set out in the Charter of the United Nations: Negotiation, mediation, conciliation, arbitration: we must try everything to settle our disputes by peaceful means.”

14. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“The COVID-19 pandemic and the recovery from it have exposed the shocking divides that exist in our world. Far from waning, many injustices are increasing. The accumulation of wealth borders on the obscene. Since 2020, nearly two thirds of the new wealth created worldwide has gone to one percent of the population.”
15. Med shot, guests
16. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“The gap between developed and developing countries, between the North and the South, is widening at times, driven by a profoundly unjust and dysfunctional international financial system. The poorest countries are drowning in debt, while the richest have been able to invest in a strong economic recovery post-COVID. There is a risk that this economic and social divide will lead to political fractures. This injustice is a threat to peace, both locally and globally. Once again, there is an urgent need to rebuild trust, based on justice and solidarity.”

STORYLINE:

After receiving the Carlos V European Award, Secretary-General António Guterres today (9 May), urged “to heal divisions, prevent escalation and listen to grievances,” and said, “Instead of bullets, we need diplomatic arsenals.”

Granted by the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation, the "Carlos V European Award" was handed over by King Felipe VI of Spain at the Royal Monastery of Yuste.


Guterres said, “we live in a world today in which peace is elusive and fragile. Violence is rampant in too many corners of the globe. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which is a violation of the Charter of the United Nations and international law, is causing massive suffering and devastation to the country and its people and comes on top of the worldwide economic dislocation triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

He stressed that the UN Charter calls for “negotiation, mediation, conciliation, arbitration” and added that “we must try everything to settle our disputes by peaceful means.”

The COVID-19 pandemic, the Secretary-General said, “exposed the shocking divides that exist in our world.” He noted that “the accumulation of wealth borders on the obscene” and “since 2020, nearly two thirds of the new wealth created worldwide has gone to one percent of the population.”

Guterres said, “the gap between developed and developing countries, between the North and the South, is widening at times, driven by a profoundly unjust and dysfunctional international financial system. The poorest countries are drowning in debt, while the richest have been able to invest in a strong economic recovery post-COVID. There is a risk that this economic and social divide will lead to political fractures. This injustice is a threat to peace, both locally and globally. Once again, there is an urgent need to rebuild trust, based on justice and solidarity.”

The "Carlos V European Award" honours people, organisations, projects or initiatives that have contributed to the general knowledge and the enhancement of Europe's cultural and historical values or to the European Union's process of integration.
