In his address, Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Van Sickle from the Office of Defense Cooperation within the U.S. Embassy said: „Newspaper headlines often focus on the divisions between people—divisions based on ethnicity or religion. Overcoming these tensions and bridging the differences is not an easy task to achieve anywhere… The students and the teachers may not do it alone. They need the support of their families, their community and their leaders. Overcoming and removing divisions necessitates joint efforts by everyone.

After the speeches, the primary school students presented their joint activities by means of which they enhance their friendship, nurture and develop their mutual respect and build their joint future.
