UN chief calls for ceasefire on International Peace Day

  •  World

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is calling for the laying down of arms and a 24-hour cease-fire on 21 September, which is observed around the world each year as the International Day of Peace, UN News Centre reports.

The United Nations General Assembly established the International Day of Peace in 1981 as an opportunity for people around the world to promote the resolution of conflict and to observe a cessation of hostilities.

"Let’s make this International Day of Peace a day without violence, and a day of forgiveness. If, for one day, we can live in a world without aggression and hostility, we can imagine how much more is possible,"  Ban Ki-moon said.

The theme of this year’s commemoration is "Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All".
