Racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia must be opposed by everyone in the world, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres has said amid an outrage over United States President Donald Trump’s defence of white supremacists after the Charlottesville violence.
A woman was killed and 19 were injured in Charlottesville on Saturday when a suspected white supremacist drove his car into a group of counter-protesters.
When asked whether he is under pressure from the U.S. government to not speak freely, Mr. Guterres strongly replied in the negative.
