Venezuelan President recalls International Day of Peace

Caracas, Sep 21 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Thursday commemorated the International Day of Peace, and affirmed that peace is built on respect, recognition and coexistence.

That is the path of the Bolivarian Republic and “we will always insist on building a world without hatred and violence, where human solidarity and social justice prevail,” the head of State wrote on his X account, formerly Twitter.

The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) declared September 21, 1981, as the International Day of Peace, with the goal of commemorating the ideals of peace of every people and every nation.

The date makes special emphasis on social and economic development on issues such as poverty, hunger, health care, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, electricity, environment and social justice.

In 2001, the UNGA also designated this day as a Day of Non-Violence and Ceasefire, which is enshrined in Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.”

The UN celebrates this year’s International Day of Peace with the theme Actions for Peace: “Our Ambition for the Global Goals,” which calls for individual and collective responsibility to achieve the Global Goals.

At the Sustainable Development Goals Summit held on Monday in New York, Foreign Minister Yván Gil reaffirmed Venezuela’s faithful commitment to finding solutions to help to achieve the expected results in terms of sustainable development.
