    UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres claims that the United Nations system should have a new office for counter-terrorism.

    UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — The United Nations system should have a new office for counter-terrorism, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the UN General Assembly.

    "Create a new Office for Counter-Terrorism," Guterres said on Wednesday. "This Office would be headed by a new Under-Secretary-General."

    Guterres said the main goal of this initiative is to improve efficiency. The Office will report to the General Assembly through the secretary-general himself.

    The Secretary-General invited UN General Assembly members to share their views on the initiative.
