Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham, House of Lords, United Kingdom

Tom [Brake], Dr Walsh, very distinguished ladies and gentlemen and friends, I am very sorry that I have to leave soon after my speech or just a few words, but I want to say thank you to the UPF, because for many, many years we have been working for peace, not only in the middle east, and I have had the pleasure of working with some of the friends here in Jerusalem, as well as on the Korean peninsula.

Amb. Robert Vandemeulebroucke

A good starting point are the building blocks of a well-functioning modern society: the implementation of the rule of law, free and fair elections, a multi-party system, a free press, an independent justice, religious freedom, respect of minorities, sustainable economic policies to the benefit of all, good education opportunities, etc.

Prof. J. Martin Ramirez

I have been in contact with this Foundation for a long time. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet old friends.
