Secretary-General's Message :-
On the International Day of Peace, the United Nations calls for a complete
cessation of hostilities around the world.
We also ask people everywhere to observe a minute of silence, at noon local time, to honour the victims those who have lost their lives, and those who survived but must now cope with trauma and pain.
The theme of this year's observance is "Sustainable Peace for a Sustainable Future".
