On the occasion of the World Day of Peace, I participated in the celebration of the first anniversary of the European Centre for Peace and Cooperation and the House of Encounters "Maria Star" in Banja Luka. I spoke on behalf of the International Pan-European Union and emphasised the value of the European Centre in the Trappist monastery, which connects Europe's past with Europe's present and future.

Bishop Dr. Franjo Komarica spoke about the realisation of peace among members of different nations and religious communities on respect for conscience and the search for truth. The Vice-President of the Pan-European Union of Germany Andreas Raab read a letter from the Co-President of the Board of Trustees of the European Centre of the former President of the Federal Republic of Germany Christian Wulff. Participants: Consul General of the Republic of Croatia in Banja Luka Zoran Piličić, Brod-Posavina County Prefect Danijel Marušić, Head of the Regional Office of the High Representative in Banja Luka Marianni Berecz, representatives of Renovabis Burkhard Haneke and Herbert Schedler, envoy of Banja Luka Mufti Effendi Muris Spahić , representatives of the Pan-European Union from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Germany, representatives of HKD Napredak, Banja Luka diocese and others.
