That these resolutions not to be taken seriously, do doubts arise as to why these systems even exist. To be honest, the system is detached from reality. While they firmly argue, children are blown up.’
In the besieged enclave lives up to 400,000 people in dire circumstances. ‘Eastern Ghouta can’t wait, it is high time that this hell on earth to stop, ” says Guterres.
