Mr. Chairman,

The Agenda Item 15 of the General Assembly reminds us that peace is not only a goal to be fulfilled but a supreme objective to be preserved.

There can be no peace without full respect for the sovereignty of States; and there can be no peace without respect for the self-determination of peoples and the territorial integrity of States.

Violence must be brought to an end, life must be respected, dialogue and cooperation must be considered, and emphasis must be placed on education and the transmission of values for peace.
