The United Nations has unanimously adopted Bangladesh’s flagship resolution on the ‘Culture of Peace’.
The Permanent Representative (PR) of Bangladesh to the UN, Ambassador Rabab Fatima, introduced the resolution in the General Assembly on Thursday.
Ambassador Fatima said that "the resolution this year assumes greater relevance and urgency as they continue to grapple with the unprecedented, multifaceted challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic".
The resolution was first adopted on 13th September 1999, during the first tenure of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Since then, Bangladesh has been facilitating this resolution in the Assembly every year and also convening a high-level forum on the Culture of Peace at the Assembly.
