HWPL and Aljazeera sign MOU for cessation of war, world peace
Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Aljazeera media network, one of the world’s most respected news and current affairs channels, to achieve their common goals: the cessation of war and world peace. The agreement was signed in the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas, Seoul, Korea, at noon on 18 September. It is HWPL’s first MOU with the global media.
Mr. Elkhidir participated in the Proclamation Ceremony of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War last 14 March, which marked the beginning of cooperation. Mr. Lee’s dedication was so moving that Aljazeera has steadily interacted with HWPL. It led to Mr. Elhag, who helped formulate the Doha Declaration, specifically dedicated to protecting journalists worldwide. Finally, two journalists took part in the second Commemoration of the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit and made MOU work.
To have close cooperation was promised by Mr. Elhag and Mr. Lee, who emphasised the role of global networks to achieve world peace and appreciated the cooperation and help of Aljazeera. Mr. Elkhidir caught this historical moment on camera. The idea to become one to achieve world peace and the important role of youth were strongly featured in their dialogue.
The purpose of MOU is that two organisations join together to lead the peace movements with spreading a culture of peace and peace education to all people, including women, youth, and religious leaders. HWPL’s peace activities will be broadcast in English, Arabic and Turkish, among others, to over 140 countries across the globe and special documentaries about HWPL will be made. In addition, ways to protect journalists’ rights, one of the Aljazeera’s initiatives, will be discussed.
At this year’s Summit, leaders in the field of politics, law, religions, and civil society have gathered to discuss concrete action plans for each sector to advocate for a legally binding document in compatibility with the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) for three days from 17 to 19. Fifty-nine broadcasters particularly shared ideas on how to draw people’s support as journalists in press conference and the media forum.
