I would like to welcome Reverend Kwak, H.E. Dr. Boutros Boutros-Gali, Professor Jacques Barrat, Dr. Walsh and all the family of the Universal Peace Federation. Though this is not the first time that this Federation is having gatherings here at UNESCO, this is my first time to welcome them and to address the family of the Peace Federation.
