Seychelles Sir James Mancham addresses the Reconciliation, Tolerance and Human Security Conference in the Balkans

Seychelles Sir James Mancham addresses the Reconciliation, Tolerance and Human Security Conference in the Balkans ( Speaking at the opening ceremony of the ECPD eighth international conference on Reconciliation, Tolerance and Human Security in the Balkans at the Belgrade City Hall on Saturday, October 20, 2012 in Belgrade, Serbia, former President of Seychelles, Sir James R. Mancham, said that the time had come to build a bridge over the troubled waters of Serbia and Kosovo. We must dry up the water of hate which floats between these two entities, the former President of Seychelles stated. Instead, we must bring about an atmosphere of fraternal, happy, and fruitful co-existence.

Mr. Mancham had the same words for Radio Television of Serbia, when he gave an exclusive interview to Danijela Cvetkovic, from the foreign-desk of Serbia national TV network.

On the sideline of the conference, which had gathered some 200 leading academicians and professors associated with ECPD, to discuss the theme “New
Balkans in a changing world - with a changing Europe.” The European Center for Peace and Development is, of course, closely associated with the United Nations University of Peace, and Mr. John Maresca, Rector of the UN University of Peace, was among those invited to take the postdrum at the opening ceremony, which was chaired by HE Prof. Dr. Takehiro Togo, President of the ECPD Academic Council, of which Mr. Mancham is a member.

Former UN Secretary General, Mr. Boutros Boutros Ghali, who is President of the ECPD Honorary Council, sent a special message which was read at the conference.

The government of the Serbia was presented by HE Mr. Zoran Vujic, the Assistant Minister in Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia.

Following the ECPD conference in Belgrade, former President Mancham will be in Berlin this week for a conference on Africa, hosted by the Institute of Cultural Diplomacy. Mr. Mancham is Patron of the African Chapter of the Institute, which promotes soft power as opposed to hard power – peace through cultural diplomacy, rather than through violence and war.
