STORYLINE:
Marking the International Day of Peace, Secretary-General António Guterres said, “As we meet today, peace is under assault.”

In his remarks at the Peace Bell Ceremony on the Occasion of the 41st Anniversary of the International Day of Peace, Secretary-General António Guterres today (16 Sep) said, “The poison of war is infecting our world.”

The UN Chief continued, “It is also pushing our shared goals for the future farther and farther away. Instead of fighting each other on the battlefield, humanity should be rallying together to tackle the common challenges we face. Like poverty, hunger, and inequality. Climate change and biodiversity loss. The COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to devastate lives and economies alike. And racism – the focus of this year’s International Day of Peace.”

The UN chief also said, “Advancing the cause of peace is the primary mission of the United Nations. But the task of building peace belongs to every person. Together, let’s wage peace.”

The Secretary-General reiterated, “Now more than ever, we need global solidarity, collective action, commitment, and mutual trust. It starts here – and it starts now. Let us sound the call for a world of peace for all people.”

The United Nations Association of Japan donated the Peace Bell in June 1954.

It has become a tradition to ring the bell twice a year: on the first day of spring, at the Vernal Equinox, and on 21 September to celebrate the International Day for Peace.

On the International Day for Peace, the United Nations Secretary-General rings the bell to pray for World Peace in the presence of Representatives of Permanent Missions and officials of the UN Secretariat.
