United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Thursday that Olympic Games must be an instrument for peace in the world.

The UN chief made the remarks at a press stakeout at the UN headquarters in New York in response to the question that why he will attend the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games.

"The Olympic Games is an extremely important event, and it's an event that symbolizes the role of sports in bringing people together and in promoting peace, and it is in this strict context and without any political dimension that I intend to be present in the opening, with this message that Olympic Games must be an instrument for peace in the world," said Guterres.
