United Nations: Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Friday pledged to “do everything” in his power during his second innings as the UN chief to contribute to a better future for all as the Covid-19 pandemic revealed the world’s shared vulnerability, inter-connectedness and absolute need for collective action.

Guterres said this soon after the 193-member UN General Assembly appointed him as the Secretary General for a second five year term from January 1, 2022-December 31, 2026.

President of the 75th session of the General Assembly Volkan Bozkir administered the oath of office to the 72-year-old former Portuguese prime minister.

“This is a solemn moment. I find myself experiencing a whirlwind of emotions and thoughts. I am deeply honoured and grateful for the trust you have placed in me to serve as the Secretary-General of the United Nations for a second term. Serving the United Nations is an immense privilege and a most noble duty,” Guterres said in his remarks to the General Assembly after his oath of office.
