INTERNATIONAL DAY OF NON-VIOLENCE
Today is the International Day of Non-Violence, which is also the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi. In a message, the Secretary-General said that in marking the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, this International Day is a timely reminder to strive to uphold values that Gandhi lived by: the promotion of dignity, equal protection for all, and communities living together in peace.
And on this year’s observance, the Secretary-General stressed that we have a special duty, which is to stop the fighting to focus on our common enemy – COVID-19.
Today we issued a note to correspondents and tweeted out that the Secretary-General sends his best wishes to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a quick and complete recovery.
