My sincere and warm greetings to you all and best wishes on the occasion of International peace day. I would like to extend my cordial thanks to Dr. Li Ruohong the President, China World Peace Foundation.
Based on the principle of internationalization, neutrality, cooperation and public welfare, and with the theme of Peace plus Culture, Peace plus Education, Peace plus Sports and Peace plus Health, the contribution of China World Peace Foundation is admirable. Additional activities such as communication between different governments, international organizations, multinational enterprises, promoting the exchanges and cooperation between governments and NGOs, to promote the civil and diversified diplomacy, to support developing countries and vulnerable groups, to facilitate homeland reconstruction in war-torn countries and help to defuse the regional tensions are very significant work done by the Peace Foundation. I hope and wish Foundation may continue such activities more in coming days.
Since 2014, UNESCO, China World Peace Foundation (CWPF) and Beijing International Peace Culture Foundation (BJIPCF) are jointly organizing the Peace Garden Peace Festival on the occasion of International Day of Peace in Beijing consecutively. I would like congratulate continuing this great initiative also this year with the theme of Peace Dialogue, Civilization, Health and Youth Space. Here in Nepal Former Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala is famous for leading to establish the peace and recognized as Peace Icon. Girija Prasad Koirala Foundation is also conducting different program and its main principle also for Peace and Prosperity, I hope to have some joint work in future.
Unfortunalty, this year we all are on the battlefield to fight with common enemy corona virus. This virus threatens our health, security and every way of life. COVID-19 has thrown our world into turmoil and forcibly reminded us that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere. Therefore I would like to express my message to all the international leaders and community on the occasion of International peace day lets minimize our differences on other issues and focus to fight against the common enemy of mankind and let’s work for sustainable peace.
Thank you so much!
