"He was saddened by what he saw, and his reaction, his message - which in a sense is one that he's given in many other situations - is that political leaders need to impress on their followers the need to refrain from violence and respect the democratic process; and respect the rule of law. I mean, it is a very important message that political leaders need to give to those who listen to them."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, United Nations:
"In general terms, we have spoken out at the risk- and not only the risk but the fact - that social media platforms have been used to propagate violence, to propagate hate speech. I mean, there've been UN studies on how they've been used in various conflicts, in various civil wars. And that is - I think it just increases the responsibility of the people who manage those platforms to ensure that they are not misused to do physical harm to people."

STORYLINE
A UN spokesperson said Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was “saddened” by the events in Washington DC last night and called on political leaders to “refrain from violence and respect the democratic process.”

Responding to questions from reporters in New York today (07 Jan), UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said Guterres’s message, "which in a sense is one that he's given in many other situations - is that political leaders need to impress on their followers the need to refrain from violence and respect the democratic process; and respect the rule of law. I mean, it is a very important message that political leaders need to give to those who listen to them."

Dujarric added in his response, “The President and others are political leaders, so I think the Secretary-General's message applies to all those who have political responsibilities."

Asked about various social media platforms blocking President Donald Trump’s accounts, Dujarric said, "In general terms, we have spoken out at the risk- and not only the risk but the fact - that social media platforms have been used to propagate violence, to propagate hate speech. I mean, there've been UN studies on how they've been used in various conflicts, in various civil wars. And that is - I think it just increases the responsibility of the people who manage those platforms to ensure that they are not misused to do physical harm to people."
