Überreichung der Collage UN durch Herrn Botschafter Dr. Derix an
Herrn Federico Mayor, Generaldirektor der UNESCO, am 25. September 1997 in Paris.


is a vivid expression of the increasing interdependence
between the nations of the world and reflects a global approach to the complex problems facing
us all on the threshold of the third millennium.
I consider that it may also be interpreted as an appeal for improved understanding
between nations and cultures in the service of the global ethic implicit in
UNESCO`s Culture of Peace Programme.
