The Presidential Commissioner for Human Rights and Victims Care, Humberto Prado, celebrated the 75th anniversary of the United Nations (UN).
Prado explained that it was on this day in 1945 that the United Nations Charter came into force.
“With the ratification of this founding document by most of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially entered into being,” he added this Saturday through his personal Twitter account.
The Commissioner also recalled that the organization is celebrating its anniversary in the midst of “major upheavals” such as the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic and social repercussions it has produced.
The Venezuelan representative said that by 1945, the UN had only 51 registered countries and that there are currently 193 members.
He also explained that in the UN General Assemblies important decisions of any kind are discussed and taken, for example: Peace and security, climate change, human rights, humanitarian emergencies, terrorism, gender equality and health.
“UN Day reaffirms the principles of international law and the importance of multilateralism, with the aim of having a just democratic international order,” he ended.
