International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) Chairwoman Hyun Sook Yoon has urged support of DPCW at the 5th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).
Yoon who was speaking during the online meeting said since war is taking place in all parts of the world at this very moment, an international peace law based on DPCW is essential.
“Without proper law, war cannot cease that is why there needs to be support for an international peace law,” she emphasized.
Over 3.8 billion women of IWPG, a wing of HWPL, are also working together with branches and members to urge for the establishment of an international peace law to achieve freedom, peace, and love for humanity.
World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) Chairman Man Hee Lee said it has been five years since the Declaration (of Peace) has been proclaimed to the world.
“Now all we have to do in this era is to leave peace without war, freedom, and love as a legacy for the future generation,” he also added.
Lee said currently the work for international law has momentarily paused due to COVID-19 but the work to achieve peace for the world has not changed.
The group will we will once again address the issue to the United Nations General Assembly and make sure it is implemented after containment of Covid-19.
