PRESS RELEASE OF THE PRESIDENT OF WORLD ROMA ORGANIZATION AND AMBASSADOR FOR PEACE

APPEAL FOR PEACE AND STABILITY IN THE REGION

"I address all people in political sphere that it is high time for tensions to calm down so that we can all continue to live and create peacefully in this region.

The tragic death of Oliver Ivanovic is just the opposite. It is a blow to the peace and security of all citizens of this region, which also threatens citizens' rights to live. We are all witnesses that conflicts do not lead anywhere, except into new bloodsheds and disturbance of life balance.

Regardless of nationality and religion, we all live under the same sky, we breathe the same air, we feel the same sun, we have the same concerns. Is it then possible that we cannot finally agree that we all, indeed, need peace and well-being in order to regulate our lives and live in peace with our families, friends and neighbours?

I put my hopes in the system that the perpetrators of this crime will be brought to justice and I appeal to politicians to reach out to each other, in order to achieve conditions for diplomacy and dialogue, as well as to avoid new conflicts that would endanger peace and stability." - said the President and Ambassador for peace Jovan Damjanovic.
