UNPKFC and UNESCO have organized a Global Leadership Summit 2022 on World Peace Day and a memorial ceremony honoring veterans of every battlefield
World Peace Day, or International Day of Peace, falls on September 21st of every year. It is a day to make people around the world aware of refraining from violence to human, animal and environment. Due to the past world history, wars and violence have led to countless losses. Even at the present period, there is still violence happening all over the world ranging from family problems to international problems. Thus, by using peaceful methods to solve problems is the way to create peace on this world.
In this regard, UNPKFC (United Peace Keepers Federal Council) and UNESCO (Jamaica National Commission for UNESCO) led by Dr. Aphinita Chaichana, operating chairman together with network partners in both public and private sectors, both Thai and international, have participated in organizing the Walk for Peace on World Peace Day with the leaders of various networks such as World Buddhist Scout Council, Territorial Women Volunteer Association, Thai-Asean Arts and Culture Conservation Organization, World Peace Foundation, Faith Governance Association, Thai volunteer spokesman for local government, Association Public Participation Under the Constitution, Association of Radio and Television Broadcasting together with UNPKFC network partners, both Thai and international, along with a group of famous orchestras from Korea including 30 people who are Veteran civil servants, police, and civilians, led by the band leader Mr. Kong Yun Pal to thank the Thai veterans who joined the fight in Korea.
Thailand was one of 21 countries that responded to a UN request to send troops to aid South Korea during the Korean War (1950–1953) and was the first to show support for South Korea's ideology. Regarding the visit of the orchestra, the band leader said that if there were no Thai troops, then there would be no South Korea today.
At the opening ceremony remarked by Dr. Sultan Azam Temuri, Inspector General of the Pakistan National Police, Former Acting Commissioner of the UNAMID (United Nations–African Union Mission in Darfur), Darfur, Sudan, and UNPKFC Global Chairman, he said on behalf of UNPKFC that I am honored to be a part of the UNPKFC Global Leadership Summit 2022. In my 33 years of career as a member of the Pakistan Police Department. I have been involved in UN peacekeeping operations for about 7 years, I have learned two important lessons. From my peacekeeping experience, the first is the importance of alleviating human suffering by helping people in practice. The second is the need for an integrated and synchronized approach from all stakeholders, whether they be INGOs or NGOs, as they play an important role in implementing the approach. The United Peace Keepers Federal Council (UNPKFC) is an INGO that strives to be an example of excellence with a vision of an ideal world through peace, justice, sustainable equality, tolerance, and peaceful coexistence among global citizens living in an ideal environment.
This vision is carried out by advocating the United Nations' global mandate on peacekeeping and building peace in accordance with the universal declaration of Human Rights and Sustainable Development Goals as well as express gratitude to the government, private sector and volunteer leaders both domestically and internationally for supporting the Sustainable Development Goals with UNPKFC and Mr. Everton Hannam, Secretary-General of UNESCO from Jamaica, Honorary Chairperson of UNPKFC, said that this is his first visit to Thailand in order to support UNPKFC for its goals and sustainable development in terms of education, environment, and peace, along with showing gratitude to the government and private sectors, Dr. Aphinita Chaichana, the chairman of the operation, for their dedication to making these things happen.
