Tree of Peace and Unity planted in UN garden to mark 70th anniversary of WWII victory

In honor of the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, the Tree of Peace and Unity was planted in the UN headquarters.

The event was attended by the Secretary General of United Nations Ban Ki-moon. He was joined by diplomats from various countries, including the Permanent Representative of Belarus to the UN Andrei Dapkiunas.

Weeping Cherry is a symbol of not only peace but also sorrow for the victims of that terrible war.

Until the end of this week, New York and the headquarters of the United Nations will host exhibitions and concerts in honor of the main historical date of the 20th century.
