Mr. Ban Ki Moon, UN Secretary General, sent a message to IFLC. “I am delighted to greet the International Festival on Language and Culture. I commend the Peace Islands Institute for making this meeting possible and bringing young people from 27 countries together to discuss and celebrate our cultural and linguistic diversity,” Ban said in his message.
