UN Commemorates the International Peace Day

As conflicts continue to rage worldwide, International Peace Day, is perhaps a timely reminder of the alternatives that exist to violence
 

According to Christopher Harress, as conflicts continue to rage in Ukraine, Syria and locations around Asia, Africa and South America, International Peace Day is perhaps a timely reminder of the alternatives that exist to violence.
 
The 2015 theme is ‘Partnerships for Peace -- Dignity for All’, according to the United Nations [UN] website, which notes the theme highlights the importance of all segments of society to work together and strive for peace.
 
Meanwhile UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, called on all warring parties to lay down their weapons, observe a global ceasefire and stop the killings and the destruction, as well as creating space for lasting peace.
