Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL and President Abbasare discussing the International Convention on the Cesstion of War.
Palestine – President Mahmoud Abbas of Palestine met with Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) on 4 December to discuss Chairman ManHeeLee’s proposal on the International Convention on the Renunciation and Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts. The meeting between the two leaders was also to discuss the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, referred as the world’s ‘most intractable conflict’, which needs a precise but immediate resolution.
Having studied law at the University of Damascus, President Abbas strongly agreed with the urgent need of implementing the Convention, HWPL’s core peace initiative and the steps being taken to overcome the deficits of current international peace laws. Chairman ManHee Lee, a Korean War Veteran and peace advocate, has tirelessly pursued the work of peace ever since he experienced the atrocities youths experience and see while in the midst of war. He vowed to bring an end to military conscription and pointless conflict through the International Convention that requires governing bodies worldwide to provide practical and sustainable solutions to peace.
Chairman Man Hee Lee said at the meeting that “without the implementation of an International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts, world peace would remain a remote goal. Because law itself acts as watchman, no one can easily perpetuate violence and cause conflicts once the International Convention is set in stone.” Pleasantly surprised by the efforts and vision of Chairman Man Hee Lee, President Abbas shared his experiences and presented the ways in which he will begin supporting HWPL’s peace campaigns.
