Counter and reject leaders who seek to exploit differences between us: Guterres.


Speaking in Cairo’s historic al-Azhar mosque, UN chief António Guterres issued a call for societies, faiths and cultures everywhere to ‘focus on what unites us’, urging everyone to work together towards realizing the 2030 Agenda ‘for the collective benefit of all’.Reflecting on what he called “ever-rising hatred, racism and xenophobia”, the Secretary-General said it was vital now to “counter and reject religious and political figures who exploit differences” for their own gain.He said on Tuesday that we must also ask “why so many people feel excluded, and why they are tempted by extreme messages of intolerance against each other.”
