[HWPL] The 4th WARP (World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Summit, Guest Speakers Share their Impressions


[HWPL] The 4th WARP (World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Summit, Guest Speakers Share their Impressions

Attendees took a commemorative photo at the signing ceremony of the 2018 Global Conference for the UN Adoption of the DPCW which was held at the Ramada Songdo Hotel in Incheon on September 17th 2018

Emil Constantinescu, Former President of Romania

"It is a very good choice by many religious, political, diplomatic and cultural figures from all over the world to be gathering here in Seoul today. The WARP Summit is one of the most important events contributing to peacebuilding at a time of bloody conflict in different parts of the world."

Stjepan Mesić, Former President of Croatia

"The role of HWPL is important more than ever. HWPL will seek reconciliation (between South and North Korea) through new means. I would highly recommend that the UN General Assembly puts forth the motion to include HWPL’s message for peace on its agenda at least once per year."

Viktor Yushchenko, Former President of Ukraine

"I am sincerely impressed by the depth, simplicity and wisdom of the Declaration on Peace and the Cessation of War. This is a full and measured document that can become the basis for the joint peacemaking of all countries of the world.  Everything is needed for its implementation - the political will of the leaders of the world, the broad support of the citizens of these countries and God's will.”

Pál Shmitt, Former President of Hungary

"I believe that the main purpose of the WARP Summit is peace. There is nothing more important than peace. It is my deepest hope that everyone signs the DPCW so that it becomes adopted (by the UN) at this WARP Summit. We believe that the adoption of DPCW by all countries is the way to achieve the security for the family and peace for the nations."

Rosalia Arteaga, Former President of Ecuador

"The WARP Summit provided a great opportunity for world leaders to share their thoughts. I think it's important to have interreligious dialogue and to work for peace. We firmly believe that we can work together for peace. We will actively cooperate for peace on the Korean peninsula."

Donald Ramotar, Former President of Guyana

"I applaud your determination, efforts and energy in pursuing this dream and making this event possible. In our globalized world, we must build solidarity so that injustice involving racism, tribalism, the caste system and religion is eliminated."

Domitien Ndayizeye, Former President of Burundi

"This innovation created by Chairman Lee is very important because we want to get to the heart of the world's hope: peace. Today, every country in the UN must support the DPCW."

Gennady Bourbulis, Representative of the Baltic Black Sea Forum

"Even the UN today does not function according to the purpose for which it was established. Given this situation, we must actively support the DPCW. I'm confident that this declaration will have an opportunity to be formally presented to the UN General Assembly."

Djoomart Otorbaev, Former Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan

"Each forum participant should make the DPCW known to many people around the world and to governments. Then the world will actively discuss peace and bring it to the United Nations, and eventually the DPCW will be adopted as an acceptable international law."

Iakoba Taeia Italeli, Former Governor-General of Tuvalu

"I am very happy to be able to support the DPCW. I believe that the WARP Summit is a truly worthwhile journey to take with people who love peace. We must do our best to support the DPCW."

  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✌️
