UN Adopts Symbolic Olympic Truce Period Ahead Of 2014 Sochi Olympics

The U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday "adopted a symbolic resolution calling for a global truce" throughout the 2014 Sochi Olympics and Paralympics, according to Peter James Spielmann of the AP. The General Assembly "has passed similar resolutions" since '93. The Russian-sponsored resolution "made no reference to calls for a boycott of the games to protest a new Russian anti-gay law" (AP, 11/6).
