On November 30, 1981, 157 member states unanimously passed a proposal submitted by Costa Rica to establish "International Year of Peace," which was requested by the International Association of University Presidents in the 36th UN General Assembly. The UN resolution proclaimed the third Tuesday of September (currently fixed as 9/21) as "International Day of Peace," while the 37th UN General Assembly proclaimed 1986 as "International Year of Peace". Such decision by the UN became a turning point in dismantling the Cold War and ceasing the ideological conflicts in the East and West.
