An opening ceremony of the photo exhibition “Belarus and the United Nations: Past and Present” took place at 5 p.m. on October 22, in the Mobile Gallery of the National Library of Belarus (3d Floor, 116 Nelalezhnastsi Ave.). The exhibition was jointly arranged by by the Department of Public Information of the UN Office in Belarus and the National Library of Belarus.

The UN Resident Coordinator / UNDP Resident Representative in Belarus Sanaka Samarasinha, Deputy Director of the National Library of Belarus Elena Dolgopolova, and DPI Oficer–in–Charge Victor Radivinovski, took part in the opening ceremony.  

The photo exhibition "Belarus and the United Nations: Past and Present " is devoted to the history of the United Nations and the active role played by Belarus in its creation. The Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic — one of the 51 states  – was directly involved in the drafting and signing of the UN Charter.

Part of the exhibition is devoted to the activities of the UN system organizations on achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Each photograph reflects a human–touch story of the humanitarian and peacekeeping projects of the UN in different parts of the world.

The Millennium Development Goals are aimed at the realization of various indices by 2015 — ranging from reducing extreme poverty rates by half and provision of primary education to all children – to curbing the spread rate of diseases, such as HIV/AIDS.
