2018 HWPL World Peace Summit
Collaboration for Peace Development:
Building a Peace Community through the DPCW
‘The past does not need to be the future. A new world can begin today. It is the last chance for the peace of humanity.’ These sentences come from promotional video of ‘2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit.’ This video shows very well what kind of mindset when they are dealing with world peace. They think that achieving peace is ‘Out Duty that we have to do’ of our time at any cost. Can you feel their determination? Thousands of leaders and citizens from around the globe will gather for 3 days in Republic of Korea with the great determination of creating a peaceful world together. I will tell you their HWPL peace quotes with Man Hee Lee.
HWPL Peace Quotes #1
Hon. Emil Constantinescu, Former President of Romania
“The event which is taking place today at this stadium is mainly addressed to the youth, who do not want to be forced by their countries’ leaders to fight against each other, and the women who would like to protect, not only themselves, despite being innocent victims, but to protect also their husbands, children and brothers from the horrors that any war inevitably brings about. Youth and women can become the most persuasive advisories of peace in the present and in the future.
Both avoiding war and establishing peacebuilding processes require a laborious effort to create a culture of solidarity outlining a pragmatic style in which the statements should followed by effective actions. The fact that so many distinguished representatives of the world’s public opinion, religious leaders, politicians, diplomats and cultural personalities, are today gathered represents such an efficient action.
Differently from 4 years ago we now have more people, are more united, and are more determined to stop the wars wherever they are. I believe that the Declaration of World Peace proclaimed in Seoul can get everyone around the world, no matter if they are men, women, youth or children, ready to unite under the mantle of peace and take the responsibility to promote the message of peace to the entire world. We are one.”
HWPL Peace Quotes #2
H.E. Viktor Yushchhenko, Former President of Ukraine
“I am deeply grateful to be able to implement the cause of peace in a specific way. This is truly a worthy cause. I was deeply impressed to see the DPCW with its refined and profound wisdom. I think it is worth the support from all leaders of the world. This is because the DPCW is a perfectly balanced document that was drafted through the great effort of international legal experts and is of fundamental value.”
HWPL Peace Quotes #3
H.E. Ivo Josipović, Former President of Croatia
“Our goal of peace is high and not an easy task. There are still people who use war as a political tool, and for some people peace is just an ideal concept. But I believe that peace and those who are for peace will be true winners in the next generation. It is important to remember the September 18th Peace Festival held in 45 cities around the world, against the threat of nuclear weapons. As the result of the third round of the Inter-Korean Summit, in the battle of darkness and light, we can expect more for the unification of the Korean Peninsula.”
Man Hee Lee Quotes #4
Mr. Man Hee Lee, HWPL Chairman
“I am sincerely grateful to the members of the HWPL Advisory Council (all the distinguished guests), the International Law Peace Committee, the HWPL publicity ambassadors, and the press. Their unwavering support and efforts have made known HWPL’s Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) all around the world to the point that everyone has heard of it.
We, the peace messengers of HWPL, have also carried out the peace work relentlessly across the globe and promoted the DPCW.
I have noticed that no one in this world wanted war, but everyone wanted peace. Hence, I am certain that peace will be achieved.”
