International day of living together in peace

In the midst of the challenges and hardships which the world witnesses nowadays, countries take different approaches in the way they deal with them and in the way they arrive at the results they want to achieve. But due to long years of suffering and discrepancies , we have  become sure of the need for a humanitarian requirement demanded by our social nature  and dictated by our human  interests. Based on this, the UN General Assembly declared in the year 2017 that the 16th of May every year should be observed as an International Day of living together in Peace.This day calls on all states and nations to enhance communication and consolidate the human bonds among all nations in the framework of peace, sustainable development, tolerance and cooperation.
