Human rights are the base of everything we do

H.E. Harald V,King of Norway rightly says, In a globalized world, where we all are interdependent, we need each other in our common struggle for lasting peace based on justice and dignity of all. Let us never forget that it is after all easier to wage war than to make peace. As our great explorer Fridtjof Nansen once said: “We do not get war unless people want it themselves. War is not an effect of a natural catastrophe. It is a result of man’s will. It is their own shame.” He further emphasized, Today’s human rights dialogue focuses on what makes us human. It is one of the most important topics in the world. Human rights are the base of everything we do.
