This totally unprovoked war on a sovereign, independent country is completely and universally deplored and condemned. It threatens the foundations of democracy and disregards and violates human rights. </p> <p>Alongside all participants of the book sector – authors, contributors, publishers, librarians, retailers, printers and distributors – we call for immediate ceasefire, Russian withdrawal and lasting peace.  The International ISBN Agency and the wider ISBN agency community stand in solidarity with our colleagues at the ISBN Agency of Ukraine who, remarkably, continue to provide advice and support to publishers in their country.</p> <p>We send our thoughts and full support to the people of Ukraine. <br />  </p> </div> <span>Thu, 03/10/2022 - 15:11</span> Thu, 10 Mar 2022 15:11:35 +0000 iia 373 at IIA statement on the Morocco earthquake <span>IIA statement on the Morocco earthquake</span> <div><p>The International ISBN Agency is holding its Annual General Meeting in Morocco this week and many national ISBN Agencies will be attending.</p> <p>We have watched the news about the terrible earthquake that struck Morocco with horror.
