The growing unease and conflagration in the Korean peninsula has taken a new shape with the world renowned spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar making a fervent appeal to the leadership in North Korea to give peace a chance.

In his statement Sri Sri declared that his time and efforts are fully available to the United Nations, international governments and the community to forestall an unnecessary conflict and make ways for a renewed understanding in the committee of nations.

He urged all countries to exercise utmost restraint and responsibility and avoid man-made calamities at all costs. He urged Heads of State, law makers, legislators and diplomats to consider a new ethos in international relations that is founded on tolerance, compassion and dignity for all.
