75th Anniversary of the United Nations
Slovenia joins other countries in issuing a commemorative stamp to mark the 75th anniversary of the United Nations
Founded on 24 October 1945, the United Nations (UN) is the most important international organisation working for peace and security, friendly relations between nations and the improvement of living conditions around the world. Over the course of its 75 years of existence, the UN has made a significant contribution to the safeguarding of international peace and security, the peaceful resolution of conflicts, international cooperation, and the respect for human rights and international law.
In this time, the countries of the world have achieved the greatest reduction of poverty in the history of humanity, recorded important breakthroughs in standards of living and succeeded in reducing child mortality by a third. Through the realisation of the 17 goals of the Sustainable Development Agenda and the commitments of the Paris Agreement on climate change, the member states of the United Nations aim to achieve peace and security, prosperity and a dignified existence for today’s and future generations.
Slovenia joined the UN on 22 May 1992. Since then, Slovenia’s diplomatic corps has been working to ensure that our interests, values and positions are visible and receive due consideration in the UN’s various committees and organisations. We are active in the UN in maintaining peace and security and preventing conflicts, ensuring respect for and protection of human rights and the respecting of international law. We devote particular attention to sustainable development, including the protection of the environment and the transition to a circular economy.
