The 78th session of the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution proposed by China to establish the International Day for Dialogue among Civilizations.

According to this resolution, June 10th has been named “World Dialogue of Civilizations Day.”

This resolution emphasizes “respect for the diversity of civilizations and the vital role of dialogue between them for maintaining global peace” and achieving collective progress.

By issuing this resolution, the United Nations calls for “equal dialogue and mutual respect” among the world’s various civilizations, reflecting the core essence of the Global Civilization Initiative (GCI).

Fu Cong, China’s permanent representative to the United Nations, stated that the current crises and intertwined challenges have ushered the world into a “new era of instability and change.” He added that this situation has once again placed humanity at the “crossroads of history.”

China’s permanent representative to the United Nations also mentioned that, based on its analysis of the global situation, China has proposed the dialogue of civilizations to eliminate discrimination and prejudice, enhance understanding and trust, and strengthen people-to-people connections. He further stated, “This initiative injects positive energy into global efforts to address common challenges.”

The resolution invites all member countries and UN agencies to commemorate “World Dialogue of Civilizations Day” and organize activities to celebrate this global day.

This comes amid the ongoing conflict in Gaza has escalated significantly, resulting in a severe humanitarian crisis. The continued hostilities have led to widespread destruction, loss of life, and displacement of thousands of civilians. International efforts to broker a ceasefire have so far been unsuccessful, and the region remains on the brink of further violence.

Meanwhile, the situation in Ukraine continues to be dire, with ongoing conflict causing immense suffering for the civilian population. The prolonged fighting has led to significant casualties and displacement, severely impacting the country’s infrastructure and economy. International diplomatic efforts are ongoing, but a resolution remains elusive.

Across various global conflict zones, the dire situations continue to deteriorate, with civilians bearing the brunt of the violence. Humanitarian aid is desperately needed, but access remains challenging due to the ongoing hostilities. The international community is urged to increase efforts to mediate peace and provide essential support to those affected.
