Before UNGA Guterres With South Africa Canned Readout Not Even Mentioning Ukraine

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, Sept 17 – As the UN General Assembly without France or the UK claimed to get underway on Saturday, September 16, 2023 in a temporary building wastefully built on its North Lawn, across First Avenue there was a Burmese rally.

   Inner City Press, banned from the UN by pro-China UNSG Antonio Guterres, covered it. Video here.  

  On Sunday, September 17, Guterres issued canned readout including that he "met with H.E. Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa, President of the Republic of South Africa.     The Secretary-General and the President discussed developments related to the reform of the international financial architecture and other initiatives in support of the Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the reform of the United Nations Security Council.     The Secretary-General commended South Africa for its important role in advancing these efforts." That is the entire readout - no mention of Ukraine, a total cop-out.

The Burma rally urged the UN to credential NUG's Kyaw Moe Tun. But of course they won't: China is on the UN Credentials Committee.

And Guterres' UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric refused dozens of written questions from Inner City Press about the junta's plot to kill Kyaw Moe Tun, as prosecuted in the SDNY court Inner City Press covers daily since being thrown out of the UN by Guterres, and kept out by his Melissa Fleming. 

 Fleming, as reported, refused to response to a June 19 application by Inner City Press to enter and cover this UNGA, and then a pro bono law firm letter.

She will, however, give a speech this week it costs $800 or $2000 to attend.

Today's UN is totally corrupt.
