World summit of religious leaders opened in Moscow on Monday
A world summit of religious leaders opened in Moscow on Monday. This is the first such representative inter-religious meeting. Its participants will discuss such issues as terrorism and extremism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, epidemics, drug abuse, poverty, environment, the education of young people, the family, and mercy. Representatives of the world’s main religions – Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Shinto – have come to Moscow. Addressing the forum, president Vladimir Putin stressed the need to bridge the gap in views of people who advocate different religious traditions. Patriarch Alexy II of Moscow and All Russia said that “it is impossible to effectively fight strife, violence, vices, extremism, and terror… without the spiritual and moral basis in the life of peoples”. The leader of Russia’s Buddhists, khambo-lama Damba Ayusheyev stressed the “importance of dialogue between different religions without mediators.” The Vatican’s representative Paul Poupard said, “The level of trust between people of different religious beliefs is increasing.”
