Peace, security, justice and respecting human dignity in the society and in the world are higher objectives for realization of which many efforts have been thus far made in the course of history.

 Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is calling for the laying down of arms and a 24-hour cease-fire on 21 September, which is observed around the world each year as the International Day of Peace.

"Over the next 30 days, let us stand with the millions of people across the world who are suffering the devastating impact of violence and conflict. Let us share ideas and plans for helping and supporting them in their time of dire need."

Since long time ago, monotheistic religions, cultures and nations have considered peace and justice an important part of the indexes of a sublime life for human beings and international communities and have called on the entire mankind to follow these objectives.
