There is a need to differentiate between the reforms currently being carried out and the work of the sovereign bodies of the United Nations, Secretary-General António Guterres said at a press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday.

 

He made the statement in response to the UN Security Council resolutions still remaining unfulfilled and how the UN reforms can help these decisions, APA reports.

 

Guterres noted that the reforms carried out in the UN have more to do with the structure of the secretariat.

 

The secretary general stressed the importance of implementing Security Council’s resolutions.

 

“Of course, it is important for the member states to fulfill Security Council's resolutions, but it does not have anything to do with the current reforms, which are mostly related to the secretariat. Of course, good secretarial decisions will also help. But the main thing is that member countries should respect the UN Security Council’s decision,” he added.
