UN Charter brought rules and hope to world in ruins: Guterres

ISLAMABAD-The United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres has said that the UN Charter brought rules and hope to a world in ruins.

Speaking at a virtual ceremony commemorating 75 years anniversary of the signing of UN Charter, he said the Charter remains our touchstone for a world mired in a pandemic, torn by discrimination, endangered by climate change and scarred by poverty, inequality and war.

It is pertinent to mention here that the UN Charter was signed in US city of San Francisco on 26th of June 1945 when World War II was ending, and came into force on October 24 in the same year.
