The Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, stressed this Wednesday before the President of China, Xi Jinping, the importance of multilateralism, international cooperation and solidarity in the context of current global challenges.
Guterres, in a bilateral meeting with Xi after the G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia, has expressed his "concern regarding the perfect storm facing many developing countries and the significant increase in poverty, hunger and dramatic inequalities in the world".
In this sense, he has informed the Chinese president about the Black Sea Grain Initiative, as well as the latest developments, among which the removal of obstacles to the unimpeded access of Russian food and fertilizers to world markets, reports a UN statement.
