At the recent West Country launch of Universal Peace Federation (UPF) - UK at a one-day leadership seminar in Cleeve House, we had a grand total of 18 participants. This included the experienced UPF presenters Mark Brann and Robin Marsh, both of whom travelled that morning, all the way from London, to give their special keynote PowerPoint presentations about UPF’s work. The main core of their talks documented pictorially the incredible amount of outreach made to many high-level contacts, including a meeting specifically requested by the Pope at the Vatican with both national and international level UPF representatives.

At a Universal Peace Federation (UPF) UK meeting last night, Antonio Betancourt, (Videos One and Two) the former Secretary General of the Summit Council for World Peace, explained his foreign policy strategy saying, ‘Don’t create a strong enemy from an adversary by demonising them. You will live to regret it!’ He added, ‘You must give your adversary the respect and dignity you, in your bias, may not think that they deserve! In the long term it is worth it! You can change your adversary into a partner.’ Video One Two

Betancourt added that he had met most of the leaders of South American nations in the 1980’s before the end of communism. He was sent also as an envoy to meet North Korean leaders (Video Three Link) to open the way for the visit of the founders of UPF, Father and Mother Moon, to Pyongyang, North Korea.
