  • Description

    Statesmen from 121 countries converged on San Francisco on Friday (June 26) when a commemorative General Assembly session was held in the magnificent Opera House to mark the 25th anniversary of the organisation. Secretary-General U Thant provided a special birthday gift when he followed a tradition of his own country - Burma - and offered ten wishes addressed to humanity.

    The original United Nations charter was signed in San Francisco by 50 nations on June 26, 1945 after three months of deliberations in the Opera House. Only five countries - Albania, Cambodia, the Central African Republic, Cuba and Gambia - were not represented at the anniversary. U Thant's message recalled the custom of "Su Taung" - or bidding good wishes on the day of anniversaries in Burma.
