The International Day of Peace "is meant to be a day of global cease-fire, when all countries and all people stop all hostilities for the entire day. And it is a day on which people around the world observe a minute of silence at 12 noon local time. And let us pledge to do our utmost to carry out the important decisions on peace taken by last week's 2005 World Summit."
