United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres being greeted by WTO Director-General Roberto Azevedo as he arrives to address a special session of the WTO's General Council, with a UN photographer in the background. He said members need to work to restore the spirit of international cooperation and ''buttress this unique institution that has safeguarded international trading relationships over the past 70 years''.

The World Trade Organisation has 164 members, and in theory, negotiates and regulates global trade. It is, however, in crisis: New multi-lateral trade negotiations have been stalled for years, while it's principle dispute settlement body, the 'crown jewels' of the WTO and the global trading system, is almost completely blocked.
