Hello. Is there any difference in meaning in the phrases "to promote national reconciliation / conciliation"?
Thank you for help.

Re: (re)conciliation

Try a Google search with both 'national conciliation' - 744.000 results, whereas 'national reconciliation' returns 4.970.000 results.
To my knowledge, the latter, 'national reconciliation' is used more often than the former, just as the Google search indicates.
My Oxford Dictionary of Collocations gives "reconciliation" that collocates with 'national'.
Hope this helps,
