[HWPL] The 3rd WARP (World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Summit, Guest Speakers Share their Impressions


[HWPL] The 3rd WARP (World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Summit, Guest Speakers Share their Impressions

On September 18th 2017, the 3rd annual commemoration of the 9.18 WARP Summit was held in Hwaseong city, Gyeonggi province. Explosive and colorful fireworks for peace sound after a special performance

No border, creed, or race could block participants' enthusiasm for ‘peace’. All participants were moved by the fact that everyone could come together for the same purpose of peace, and they proclaimed a newfound hope that peace could be achieved through the WARP Summit. Remarks and congratulatory messages by guest speakers, who unanimously proclaimed “Now is the time to end war and achieve peace”, are summarized herein.

H.E. Ivo Josipović, Former President of Croatia

"We are honoring the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW), which is a legal tool for achieving peace. The declaration, which was created through the hard work of Chairman Lee and several legal experts, brought hope and light. Reading the proclamation and seeing the determination to achieve peace gives me hope that this goal will be achieved."

Former President of Tunisia, Moncef Marzouki

"In these conditions of fragile peace and terrible wars, the permanent effort for peace must be continuous and mobilize all goodwill in the world. It is for this reason that the meaning of the WARP Summit is even greater and the role of this organization is also the same. I am convinced that the WARP Summit will maximize the effectiveness of peace activities by connecting all peace activists."

Former President of the Republic of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga

"I think the key message of this WARP Summit and that peace is important and should be global importance is timely. I am certain that the value of this peace movement will never disappear."

Stanislav Shushkevich, former Chairman of the Supreme Council of the Republic of Belarus

"I think that the beginning of the world alliance of religions' peace is Seoul, which has continued to make groundbreaking work. I believe this is symbolic and appropriate. Let's work together so that all the plans of HWPL can be implemented in order to achieve peace by encouraging the determination of leaders in each field, including society and religion, based on the high-quality WARP Summit"

Adrien Houngbédji, former President of the National Assembly of Benin

"The WARP Summit is sounding the alarm around the world in a timely manner at this point. I realized that the diversity of the participants of the WARP Summit is an important asset for realizing world peace and the end of war."

Given Lubinda, former Minister of the Ministry of Justice of Zambia

"We express our full support of Zambia for HWPL's commitment to world peace. We have a mission to widely publicize the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). Peace for all can be achieved if we, who attended the WARP Summit, ourselves connect more people to this peace network."

Sarathi Dushmantha Mithrapala, Member of Parliament of Sri Lanka

"Conflict resolution cannot be achieved without preventing the spread of the nuclear crisis, and sustainable development cannot be achieved without realizing peace. I believe that the DPCW plays a very important role in world peace. Political leaders and civil society must work together to deliver a world of peace to future generations."

Giani Gurbachan Singh, former Head Granthi (Sikh priest) of the Golden Temple

"It's amazing how different people from different backgrounds can come together for several days to discuss and share ideas on the topic of peace. I urge everyone here and members of the international community to resolve and work together for peace. Let's work together to create a sustainable peace and pass it on to future generations."

Almas Jiwani, President of Emeritus UN Women Canada NC

"Although we work with numerous peace organizations around the world, HWPL is the only peace organization in the world that works only for the purpose of peace, not money or government support. A strong light comes from the eyes of Chairman Lee who leads HWPL, and I can feel the angels working with him together."

César Coronel Garcés, Reporter for Ecuador Plan V Radio

"Global peace can be divided into pre and post-HWPL. Before HWPL, everyone talked only about war, and the media only reported war. However, since HWPL's peace movement began in earnest, people around the world began to rethink and speak about the importance of peace. HWPL is a peace organization that has awakened in mankind the importance of peace."

  1. HWPL’s peace work is unprecedented. I sincerely hope it will continue with great vigour into 2022 and beyond, as it seems peace and stability is needed now more than ever in these uncertain times. More than 30,000 people from 157 countries attended the 7th Anniversary HWPL World Peace Summit online on Sept. 18th 2021, and more than 200 schools worldwide have been designated HWPL Peace Academies, educating today's youth on the importance of peace.

    Moreover, many heads of state - both existing and former - have publicly declared their support for HWPL's Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW), citing it as the only solution to ceasing all conflict and achieving peace on a global scale. The words of H.E. Viktor Yushchenko, former President of Ukraine, sums up the importance of the DPCW very well: “The DPCW is a perfect and balanced document that can be the basis of solidarity for peacekeeping in all countries of the world. I think all the leaders of the countries should support the DPCW.”

    May the words, 'We are One!' ring true as a lasting history✌️
