Seoul, South Korea – Amid rising concerns of peace and security on the Korean Peninsula from the recent nuclear tests and satellite launch by North Korea, the organisation Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) hosted a peace forum, February 19 at the Grand Ballroom in Coex Hall, Seoul. The theme of the forum was “Humanity on the Crossroads of Conflict and Peace, Which Way Should We Choose?”

In his keynote speech, HWPL Chairman Man Hee Lee said, “In the crossroads of conflict and peace, in order to cease conflicts, a law is needed. A law for humanity, the one that disposes of all means that initiate war and armed conflicts must be proposed to be implemented. HWPL is currently undertaking an international law initiative which signifies the big leap towards transforming armed weapons into daily instruments and resolving religious conflicts.”

IWPG Chairwoman Nam Hee Kim added, “Women leaders and students throughout the world are uniting their efforts to urge for this international law to become effectively implemented. We have come to a point of time when youth can freely pursue their dreams and their passion and efforts for peace can be guaranteed and recognized.”

At the closing ceremony of the event, about 1,000 leading figures signed the World Peace Agreement to urge for the implementation of the International Law on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace. Each of them pledged on behalf of his/her people and nation, to do their best in their endeavor for the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace.

Tthe HWPL International Law Peace Committee, consisting of prestigious international law professionals, will publicly present the Declaration on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace in March 2016. There is much attention directed at the Declaration since it will include articles on the most controversial global issues as well as solution.
