A Call For Diplomacy, Peace From Skål International

Skål International has issued a statement of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, saying that it “stands strongly in favour of the use of diplomacy to avoid such conflicts” and it calls on all nations to use both diplomatic negotiations and the good offices of such organizations as the United Nations to resolve differences.

Burcin Turkkan, World President, Skål International 2022, said that: “Peace is the required status for global tourism to thrive in any destination. People only want to travel to places where they feel that they will be safe without the threat of danger, especially those related to any kind of conflict or potential life-threatening actions.”

The group notes that at a time when the world is hopefully recovering from two long years of a pandemic which has disproportionately impacted tourism, Skål International will continue to urge the use of the key tools of bilateral diplomacy and international organization deliberations to achieve a safer and welcoming world.

Daniela Otero, CEO of Skål International, said that: “Skål International will work with its own members to reach out to other organizations to which the members are affiliated to support these principles.”
