The article offers a look on the global importance of the Bilateral Peace Treaty (BPT) proposals. According to the author, BPTs offer a path to peace and they must be seen as straightforward to implement and unthreatening to adopt that nations should accept the principle. He stresses that the proposed conflict resolution structures of BPTs would benefit by the establishment of an international panel of mediators. Furthermore, the call for BPT can be coordinated with a proposal for an International Mediation Centre, a center that should be set up as non-governmental organization having consultative status with the U.N.
