The United Nations was born at the close of World War II and became an initiative for world peace. In June 1945, at an international conference in San Francisco, the United Nations Charter was signed, which entered into force on October 24th. And since this historic moment, an important date is annually celebrated around the world as United Nations Day.
Turkmenistan joined the UN in March 1992 as a new independent state. This year, the country was elected vice-chairman of the 75th jubilee session of the UN General Assembly.
On the eve of the anniversary celebration, students of eight Turkmen universities took part in an online conference, the theme of which combined two important events of this year – the 75th anniversary of the UN and the 25th anniversary of Turkmenistan’s permanent Neutrality.
Continuing the meeting, students and conference participants got acquainted with the online exhibition #TheWorldWeWant, consisting of a collection of 75 photographs taken in many parts of the world.
As noted by Elena Panova, UN Resident Coordinator in Turkmenistan, empowering youth through investing in human capital and innovative solutions is our only hope for building a more sustainable, just and peaceful world.
Mrs. Panova also made a congratulatory speech on the occasion of the UN anniversary on the air of the “Turkmenistan” TV channel.
