Stand up for HR rights for all: UN chief
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for redoubling efforts to address the root causes of conflict and advance work for the Sustainable Development Goals including by promoting inclusive societies.
"Let us stand up for human rights for all in the name of peace for all," he said seeking steps to provide access to justice and building accountable institutions.
The UN chief made the call in a message for 100-day countdown to the International Day of Peace yesterday. The Int'l Day of Peace, observed every year on September 21, embodies shared aspiration to end conflict in all its forms and to safeguard the human rights of all people.
