Baku – APA. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a message on the occasion of September 21 - the International Day of Peace, UN representation in Azerbaijan told APA. The message says that the International Day of Peace is a global call for ceasefire and non-violence.
“It is a time to reflect on the horror and cost of war, and on our duty to resolve disputes peacefully. Most of the victims of conflict are powerless. Innocent civilians. Fathers, mothers, children. Without peace they have little hope of improving their lives. Little hope of escaping poverty. Often, those who work on behalf the powerless are also targets. We should be encouraged that war between nations is happening less often. Diplomacy and negotiation are becoming a more frequent choice. And even where States are torn by internal strife, history shows that peace can prevail if there is sufficient will. On this International Day of Peace, I have a simple message for all: We Must Disarm! We must have peace,” the message says.
