(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –In Ethiopia, where a number of casualties after a bomb attack that was presumably caused by ethnic conflicts about two months ago, conferences are held for each sector of the society to foster regional reconciliation and build sustainable peace.
Conferences on the prosperity and security of Africa based on peace, attended by youth, women, media, religious and political leaders, will take place at Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, on 15 to 16 August. This series of peace conferences is organized by an international peace NGO called HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light) under the UN ECOSOC along with representatives from various sectors and organisations in Ethiopia.
On the 15th, groups of youth and women will talk about the ethnic or regional conflicts that have been continuing until recently and discuss the legalization of peace necessary for harmony and reconciliation among nations. The host organisation, HWPL, is proposing the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) as a resolution for establishing a legally binding law for peace that can fundamentally prevent war and conflict.
On the 16th, there will be a forum for interfaith dialogue to promote a network among Christian denominations to be one under the meaning of the scripture and the 2018 Addis Ababa Summit to strengthen a cooperative partnership for regional stability and peace by reaffirming the importance of the implementation of an international/internal law for peace.
