Pecemaker, ManHeeLee of HWPL calls for World Peace
The Chairman of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) Man Hee Lee has appealed for the implementation of an International Convention on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace.
He made the call at the 1st Annual Commemoration of September 18th World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Summit (WARP) held in Seoul, Republic of Korea on 17-19 of September.
Chairman Lee emphasized that “our future generations can inherit peace only if the international law experts do their part,” and urged them to “make good laws to make the world a better place.”
The WARP Peace Summit was attended by about 300 people including not only those in the various fields that had participated in the summit of the previous year but also international law experts.
In order to create an institutional framework for the realization of peace, a draft convention on the cessation of war was presented. This presentation was witnessed by the youth, women, and journalists, as each group holds an important role in achieving peace.
The WARP Peace Summit 2014 was attended by about 2,000 guests including former and current heads of state, religious leaders, youth, women, and journalists from around the world and its outdoor events (World Peace Walk and Pre-event) by about 30,000 people.
It was a summit of an unprecedented scale, where all participants came together and made promises that laid the foundation for world peace. Notably, former and current heads of state and religious leaders showed their determination to realize world peace by signing the Agreement to Propose the Enactment of International Law for the Cessation of Wars and World Peace and the Unity of Religions Agreement respectively.
