UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday (Jan 10) will deliver his first address to the Security Council since taking office, making the case for a new, more assertive diplomacy backed by world powers.

Guterres took over from Ban Ki-moon on Jan 1 with a pledge to shake up the world body and boost efforts to tackle global crises - from the carnage in Syria to the bloodshed in South Sudan.

The former prime minister of Portugal and UN refugee chief faces a deeply divided Security Council which has been unable to take decisive action to end the war in Syria, now in its sixth year.
