Olympic Truce Resolution

The United Nations (UN) General Assembly has since 1993, repeatedly and unanimously adopted every two years, one year before each Olympic Games, a resolution entitled “Building a peaceful and better world through sport and the Olympic ideal.” Through this symbolic resolution, the UN invites its member states to observe the Olympic Truce, seek the settlement of all international conflicts though peaceful and diplomatic means and recognize the importance of International Olympic Committee (IOC) initiatives for human well-being and international understanding.
