The International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace

The International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace is observed in April to promote the principles of multilateralism and diplomacy as a means of resolving conflicts and promoting peace.

Multilateralism refers to the practice of multiple countries working together to address global issues and achieve common goals. Diplomacy, on the other hand, involves negotiating and reaching agreements through peaceful means rather than resorting to violence or conflict. The International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace aims to raise awareness about the importance of these principles and the need for all countries to work together to address global challenges such as climate change, poverty, and conflict.
