The Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres stressed that the settlement of conflicts in Europe, including in the east of Ukraine, will become one of the priorities of the organization in 2018.
Guterres stressed that the settlement of conflicts in different parts of Europe requires the prevention of "the dangerous tide of nationalism and the need for revitalizing the relevant mediation initiatives". This is reported by the UN News Center.
"It is necessary to get out of a paralysis that allows European conflicts to continue, as well as to move to a frozen state. Based on the experience of two world wars and taking into account the resources and capacities available in Europe, there is no justification for the existence of conflicts in the region ", - the press center quotes Guterres.
