World Interfaith Harmony Forum at the UN General Assembly

World Interfaith Harmony Week:

"Caritas Internationalis has been part of the high-level civil society and NGO coordination to develop the annual World Interfaith Harmony Week in cooperation with the president of the UN General Assembly.

The week concluded with GA President Ambassador Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser’s invitation to the more than 900 participants at UN Headquarters. “We recognize and celebrate the values that are shared across religious traditions,” said Mr. Al-Nasser. “The common principles form a common ground that unites us in our rich diversity...”

"...UN General Assembly President declared today’s gathering an historic event. It brought into international public focus the long, yearning call initiated many years ago by the King of Jordan to promote the vital role of religion in society and in the world."
