International Desk: Like every year in the UN General Assembly, the 'Sanskrit Sanskrit of Peace' resolution raised by Bangladesh has been unanimously adopted. The resolution was presented in the General Assembly on behalf of Bangladesh by the Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the United Nations, Ambassador Rabab Fatima.
This information was given in a notification sent from the UN Permanent Mission to Bangladesh on Thursday (December 3).
