Speeches

"In wars and conflicts, it is said that brute force and armed weapons is the only power and way forward. Therefore, it is rightly assumed that in order to gain the opposite of conflict and war—a true peace and a prosperous nation—the opposite of that type of power [is needed]. It is not guns or armies that will bring true peace, but knowledge, understanding and love—that is the power for moving forward."

“In Colombia, we will continue to support reunification and the development of the common points the two Koreas have shared for several decades.

Working for peace is not an easy task; nor is peace itself something that can be achieved overnight. Peace, to those who desire it, means making painful decisions. It means having endurance to deal with many challenges that prevent its quick realization. And it means having tolerance to hear the other side.”

“We Salvadorans are living at a time of deep transformation as a result of a successful peace process. We have given an institutional political direction to our country. With the help of the good offices of the United Nations, we have been the artisans of peace in El Salvador, convinced that the only possibility of overcoming the profound differences that separated us was to face them squarely and with determination.”

To our complete surprise, we were surrounded by tens of thousands of Chinese communist forces. It was a massacre, and only a handful of the soldiers in my unit were able to survive it…. I was wounded, left for dead, yet survived. . So, being able to not talk about war today, but seventy years later, to talk about peace, is so important. God did not create us—no matter what religion we have, or no religion at all—to destroy each other.”

“Korea has been a divided nation since the beginning of the Korean War many years ago. My own country, Liberia, and several other countries in the West African region have known the suffering, the destruction, and the devastation caused by war and division.”

“It is important that you all reaffirm commitment to the principles and purposes of the UN Charter, which embodies our hope for peace, development and prosperity. These principles and purposes are more relevant today than they were 75 years ago, and they continue to be our guiding force as we aspire to sustain peace and build a better future.”
