Statement by Mr Koichiro Matsuura, Director-General of UNESCO

20 March 2003

As Director-General of an institution dedicated to constructing the defences of peace in the minds of men through education, science, culture and communication, at the moment when armed conflict is beginning in Iraq I can only express my heartfelt emotion, my infinite sadness and my most profound wish that the loss of human life and the scale of suffering and destruction will be reduced to the minimum.
