The essence of our organization is its belief in respect, dialogue, and collaborative and cooperative efforts.

We therefore deeply condemn the aggression by Russia against Ukraine, the attacks and atrocities.

Our full solidarity is with Ukraine’s people and all those who are suffering innocently from this totally unacceptable war.

We will do whatever is possible to help and actively support humanitarian and diplomatic efforts.

We only hope that – in the longer-term – reason will prevail and that the space for bridge-building and reconciliation once more emerges.
