The President of Serbia has warned that the planet is entering into a "great world conflict" that could take place within the next two months.
Aleksandar Vucic made the alarming comments during the first day of the UN General Assembly session in New York.
Vucic told the Serbian state broadcaster RTS.
The Serbian leader cautioned that the war between Russia and Ukraine had moved on to a far deadlier phase.

Vucic's remarks were made on the same day that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an immediate "partial mobilization" of troops amounting to 300,000 soldiers.
In a public address to the nation, Putin warned that he wasn't bluffing and that he was prepared to use "all the means at our disposal" to protect Moscow's territorial integrity.
"The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant was shelled and also some high positions -- representatives of NATO states -- who are saying there might be possibility and permissibility to use nuclear weapons against Russia," he added.
Putin ominously asserted that western powers should "be reminded that our country also has various weapons of destruction, and with regard to certain components they're even more modern than NATO ones."
As we highlighted last month, a study conducted by Rutgers University found that nuclear war between the United States and Russia would cause two-thirds of the planet to starve to death within two years.
5 billion people would perish, primarily as a result of nuclear detonations causing huge infernos that inject soot into the atmosphere which blocks out the sun and devastates crops.
One wonders how a generation that thinks words are "violence" and misgendering someone is stochastic terrorism will react to an intercontinental nuclear war.
The mind truly boggles.
