This is our responsibility for our citizens. This responsibility should be passed on to future generations in order they also to keep peace together. Let's stand together and defeat the threats that the future may trigger: diseases, hunger, inequality. We started this fight and we can win it!
Victory is possible! Together, we can develop science, education, and art to contribute to this victory. We must do our best to avoid the confrontations and problems that threaten our peace and values. Let’s fight together for peace and security!” President Macron said.
