WCCI 13th World Conference in Antalya, Turkey: A Big Success

It was great honor and pleasure to welcome participant guests from five continents- Africa, America, Asia, Australia and Europe. Therefore, the 2008 WCCI 13th World Conference was a WCCI family event and a great success. According to reflections from both local and international participants, as well as from the local media, it can be inferred that the main objective of the world conference was achieved. By all accounts, we succeeded to make our voice heard and people realized that there are warm hearts beating for the sustainable peace in the world. In addition, our neighbor Iraq, establised an Iraq Chapter while at the conference in Antalya. This was an important sign of our mission for the world peace. By the way, I would like to extend my deepest thanks and respect to all WCCI family members, especially to WCCI Turkey Chapter members and the international secretariat for their invaluable support with which we made the 13th World Conference and outstanding one.
