On the International Day of Peace, The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for peace in the world.
Guterres expressed concern about the existence of some crises in the world and asked the people of the world to continue to create peace.
“As we mark this International Day of Peace, people and our planet are in crisis. Conflicts driving record numbers of people from their homes. Deadly fires, raging floods and soaring temperatures. Poverty, inequalities and injustices. Mistrust, division and prejudice. This year’s theme reminds us that peace is not automatic. Peace is the result of action. Let us commit to build, drive and sustain peace for all,” Antonio Guterres said.
Meanwhile, some psychologists believe that peace is not only about establishing security, but that the citizens of the country must have mental peace.
"We can only have mental and inner peace when we can at least have a hope for life, when social necessities have been given to us, and when our life is bright,” said Mohammad Safa Farzaei, a psychologist.
Some citizens of the country have different views about this day.
“Peace has been ensured in the country, and there is no war. But what people are concerned about is that there is no employment,” said Mohammad Ehsan, a resident of Kabul.
“We are happy, security has been ensured. Schools and universities and educational centers should be reopened for girls so that our country makes progress,” said Mohammad Roman, another resident of Kabul.
September 21 marks the International Day of Peace.
Each year the International Day of Peace (IDP) is observed around the world on September 21. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.
