”We should come to understand that every war ends on a table, instead of destructions before coming to the table. Is it not wiser to come to the table and avoid destruction? We need infrastructure. We need investments. We don’t need hostilities.”
”The policemen and military officers being killed are fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, children, and relatives. Anyone that has lost a close relative knows what it means to lose parents or children.
