Marking the World Day of Peace - Ki moon calls for a global cease-fire

Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, called on the occasion of the World Day of Peace to a global cease-fire, and to make a minute of silence in honor of those who died in the conflict and survivors, and those who suffer daily from the shock and pain.

He pointed out that the main issue in this year is education for peace. Beacuse education is vital to promote global citizenship and building peaceful societies, where there are 57 million children deprived from education,  in addition to many other millions who need  better education.

He urged  governments and development partners to work for the enrollment of every child in school to receive a good education, and  he considered  that there is a new momentum in the countries that have greater needs, especially these affected by the conflict, which is home to half of the children deprived from  all education  .. But we must do much more than that.

Ban said, "The education of the poorest and most marginalized  children require bold political leadership and an increase in financial liability, but sorrowfully  the aid alloted education has declined for the first time in a decade.
