Throughout history, interfaith cooperation and faith-based efforts have often been key for change. Coinciding with the celebration of the World Interfaith Harmony Week 2022, it seems especially pertinent for those voices to be heard, which can tap into the power of God and connect and contribute the wisdom of all great faiths. The session will demonstrate the unified concern of faith leaders and experts in the pursuit of ending the painful 70 years of division on the Korean peninsula. 

The time has come when the world needs to witness a great breakthrough for peace on the Korean Peninsula as an important step towards a renewed hope for lasting peace for all humanity.
