As the world has turned into a global village we must realize our responsibility as human beings and should try to pay attention to solving those issues of human rights that can help to establish peace in the world. Clearly, this attempt must be based on fair play and on fulfilling all the requirements of justice, they said.According to Ambassador Jan-Marie Ehousou, 14% of Africa populations still suffer from famine. But God has gifted many countries with an excellent climate and environment for growing different crops. We should use modern technology for agriculture, the economy would have strengthened and hunger could have been eliminated from the earth. Consequently, there shouldn’t be place for war in the world.
