Preamble

Recalling the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and other international instruments, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,

Acknowledging that all members of the human family enjoy human dignity and equal and inalienable rights, and that these rights represent a necessary tenet of the preservation of freedom, justice and peace throughout the world,

Bearing in mind the universal commitment of the world’s religions to the promotion of peaceful coexistence, tolerance and mutual respect, and the common spirit that permeates all religious scriptures and holy tests,

Bearing in mind the sovereign equality of states, and
Convinced that judicial and other dispute resolution measures can replace the rule of war with the rule of law

Call upon states

to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from international law can be maintained, and in accordance with the common spirit that permeates all religious scriptures, and the rules of international law including fundamental rights guaranteed, to undertake to prosecute and sanction gross and systematic acts of violence undertaken in the name of religion

to bring about gradual disarmament of weapons mass destruction and weapons capable of causing widespread and unnecessary suffering and weapons incompatible with international humanitarian law.
