A musical concert for the 'Soul of Peace'


AMBASSADOR of Ecuador to Qatar HE Ivonne A Baki is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the 'Peace Agreement between the Republic of Ecuador and the Republic of Peru' by holding a musical concert titled 'Soul of Peace'.
Ambassador Baki participated in the negotiations that led to the peace treaty between Ecuador and Peru in 1998. She said:"Peace is not just about non-violence. It's not just about stopping wars. It's about inclusion. People want to be accepted in society as human beings no matter where they are from or what religion they belong to or what colour they have."
Leaders of Peru and Ecuador formally ended a decades-old border dispute, sealing a peace treaty on October 26, 1998.
"I can recall now one of my best moments in my life was being an efficient part of the peace negotiations between Ecuador and Peru. I sincerely wish that the Middle East could follow this path especially with what is going on now," the ambassador added.
Renowned South Korean pianist and co-founder of Moving Young Artists, Sonja Park who studied at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, said:"I am extremely happy and feel privileged to be asked to perform in this meaningful concert where artists come from around the world to perform together. I, my 11-year-old daughter MIA, American violinist Joo Young Oh and Ecuadorian performers Jorge Saade and Juan Carlos Escudero have gathered to symbolise peace and love in honour of the 20th Anniversary of the Peace Agreement between Ecuador and Peru."
Noted Ecuadorean violinist Jorge Saade Scaff said:"I am happy to be back in Doha to share the happiness with my Ecuadorian community for the 20th anniversary of the Peace treaty."
