“I really want to thank you for the opportunity to get to know so many people from different cultures. The theme was really interesting, and we need to discuss more about those important topics. It is really important that we keep in mind what is essential and share it with each other. We need to cherish and protect families, and as you said, humanity is a big family that is connected with a common heart. So peace is connected to common values and goals. I am happy I could share a lot, and I hope this is only the beginning. I hope we have more opportunities to share with each other and hopefully the whole world. Thank you for the invitation and for organizing this peace webinar with many international participants.”
Ambassador Professor Shabani: “It was a great experience to take part in this event, and I would like to thank you so so much. ” “To conclude, I would like to cite a passage from the song “Imagine”- John Lennon. Despite the past decades, this passage is more than ever up to date…. “You can say I am dreamer, but I am not the only one. I hope someday, you’ll join us. And the world will be as one”. To conclude, I would like to express to all of you here my gratitude for having offered me the opportunity to give a word in front of you. It is an esteemed mission, which, I hope, will give success for the world.”
