Integration for Peace Summit Gets Underway in Paraguay

ASUNCION – The Integration for Peace Summit got underway Tuesday in the Paraguayan capital with participants from 50 countries and a call to continue efforts to achieve peace worldwide.

In the opening session, William Soto, executive president of event organizer Embajada de Activistas por la Paz, or EMAP, said that “what is important, is to take what is good, dispose of what is bad, and in this way reconstitute ourselves as a society.”

“Our priority ought to be in helping our peoples, and promoting social enrichment and development with fairness and justice,” Soto said.

On the first day of the Oct. 4-8 gathering, the session began with a forum on the private sector’s social responsibility to sustainable development, with representatives from Colombia, Paraguay, Panama and Spain.

Among the participants at the summit are Organization of American States Secretary-General Luis Almagro and International Criminal Court Justices Howard Morrison and Antoine Kesia Mbe-Mindua

One of the organizers, Gabriela Lara, told EFE that because this is “not a homogeneous group, there are different cultures, different countries, and each one from their culture, nationality and perspectives bring their contributions.”

This will be the second Integration for Peace Summit, with the first being held in 2015 in Santiago, Chile, where the final statement covered areas such as genocide prevention and penalties, the strengthening of peace among nations and the happiness of all humans.
