Feb 12, 2019

“Peace is something that needs efforts from everyone and makes progress step-by-step just like how it unfolded in South Korea past year.” said Director Lee Mi-kyung of KOICA (Korea International Cooperation Agency) during her keynote speech at Pyeongchang Global Peace Forum 2019 that took place on the 9th. “Peace is not simply about eliminating wars, but it needs active efforts in finding and solving structural causes of conflicts and violence and preventing them.”
“Peace is not made by special people just like how Bishop Desmond Tutu of the Republic of South Africa said at Hague Peace Conference that peace becomes reality when it is dreamt about many people rather than single person.” said Chairman Lee. “Everyone needs to participate in making a peaceful world.”
