On August 4th, HIRH Prince Gharios El Chemor of Ghassan Al-Numan VIII visited the Association of the Brazilian veterans of United Nations Peace Corps (UNEF) Battalion of Suez.
The first United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) was established by United Nations General Assembly to secure an end to the Suez Crisis with resolution 1001 (ES-I) on November 7, 1956. The force was developed in large measure as a result of efforts by UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld and a Nobel Peace Prize-winning (1957) proposal and effort from Canadian Minister of External Affairs Lester B. Pearson. The General Assembly had approved a plan submitted by the Secretary-General which envisaged the deployment of UNEF on both sides of the armistice line.
HIRH Prince Gharios El Chemor has received the medal of the UN Peace Corps Suez in a solemn ceremony at the City Council Hall. Watch the ceremony HERE
