LaRouchePAC (December 17, 2014) –  A grouping of more than 100 prominent politicians, businessmen, academics, scientists and artists from 20 countries have publicly endorsed a resolution calling on the U.S. and Europe to collaborate with the BRICS nations in the interest of peace and economic development (see below for signatures). The resolution, sponsored by the Schiller Institute, was issued in response to the offer of China’s President Xi Jinping for the United States to join China’s New Silk Road development program and abandon the policies of confrontation with particularly Russia and China. – emphasis added

The prominent signers are joined by more than 1000 ordinary citizens from these and other nations who urgently want their governments to abandon the policies of confrontation and collaborate with the BRICS countries based on the Treaty of Wesphalia’s principle of the “benefit of the other.” The Schiller Institute intends to continue to garner support for the resolution from intellectual leaders and ordinary citizens alike to create a mass movement for economic development and peace.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder of the Schiller Institute said:

“The idea of collaboration with Xi Jinping’s offer to cooperate with the New Silk Road is the most important peace initiative to get the world away from the edge of confrontation and war. Collaboration on this initiative is a fantastic perspective for mankind. I am calling on all people to distribute this resolution and help us get more support for it.” hyperlinks and emphasis added
