United Nations Charter is now in Sanskrit

United Nations: The UN Charter, the seminal treaty of the United Nations, has now been translated into Sanskrit.

"The Charter is now in Sanskrit. Thank you Dr. Jitendra Kumar Tripathi for this pioneering effort," India's Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin tweeted late on Tuesday.

Akbaruddin also tweeted a photo of the Charter’s Sanskrit cover.

Tripathi is Secretary of the Lucknow-based Akhila Bharatiya Sanskrit Parishad.

The United Nations Charter was signed on 26 June 1945, in San Francisco, at the conclusion of the United Nations Conference on International Organisation, and came into force on 24 October 1945.

The Charter is available in all six official languages of the UN.
