“These photos and documents prove that Iran has been always active in foreign affairs and invested efforts to promote international peace and security.  Iran was among 51 UN founding Member States in 1945”, she said.  

UNIC Director pointed out that the visitors would see many historical moments that are captured on photos and documents such as Dr Mustafa Adl, Head of Iranian Delegation signing the UN Charter on June 26, 1945, Ambassador Nasrollah Entezan of Iran unanimously elected as the President of the 5th session of the UN General Assembly, documents and photos related to the negotiations about various activities and meetings of UN where Iran played and keeps playing an important role.  One of the photos shows H.E. Dr Rouhani, Iranian President, presenting at the General Assembly his initiative “A World Against Violence and Violent Extremism” (WAVE).  This WAVE initiative was adopted by UN Member States as the General Assembly resolution in 2013, 2015 and 2017.
