Hon. Gaqo Apostoli welcomed the participants to Albania on behalf of the Executive Committee and of the General Assembly of more than 4000 Albanian Ambassadors of Peace. He reminded everyone of the visit to Albania of Dr. and Mrs. Moon on the 30th October 2005. 

In order to express his feeling of belonging to a community that is endlessly growing and that brings us closer to sustainable peace, he offered his rendition of the famous Song, "IMAGINE".

Religious leadership cannot effect change; hence the necessity of cooperation between leaders from different areas of society. All religions espouse values of peace; the problem is the people who do not understand religions correctly. Therefore, we need to teach religions correctly.

In Israel, Sheikh Salame founded a council of all religious leaders to strengthen the cooperation of religions. This has existed for 10 years. He appealed to everyone to do their part, even in a small way, to lead to world peace.

Ten years ago, she met UPF at a conference in London. Since then she has participated in several UPF conferences. UPF has organized conferences and summits all over the world.

She founded a forum to stimulate the appreciation of cultures in building peace. We can always achieve more when we work together.

North Macedonia and Albania are both very disappointed that the European Union rejected their application for EU membership. She said she hopes this injustice will be corrected in the nearest future.

Two places in the world where he has worked and which he cares a lot about are Northeast Asia and Southeast Europe. Therefore, he is happy to be invited by UPF to this conference.

This conference is not just about Southeast Europe; it is about all of Europe. Southeast Europe has changed a lot since 1991, when he first came to this region. Albania has done things that no one could have expected. For those who are angry about North Macedonia and Albania being rejected by the EU, he wants to say: The best way to become a member of something is to behave like you are already a member.

Albania has its challenges. Not all the politicians like to work together. Let us hope that Albania can overcome this problem. There is no better way to achieve peace than to bring people together. People should be able to disagree but not be disagreeable. In a summit like this, the purpose is not to talk about problems but to find solutions to problems. Every people in every century has had to deal with problems. We need to get the most important thing – our hearts and our brains – around these problems. When you have a setback, you need to get up, dust off your jacket and move forward.
