I would like to thank and commend His Majesty King Abdallah II’s bold initiative to mobilise members of the United Nations World Assembly to pass a resolution in support of mutual respect, understanding and peace amongst people of the world.
I consider such an initiative as the most positive and powerful means of bringing people of different faiths, ethnicity and political conviction to commit themselves in promoting the culture of peace, harmony and understanding amongst nations; regardless of their different theological and cultural differences.
This resolution has been convincingly approved by the General Assembly thanks to HRH Prince Ghazi’s effective introduction of the resolution and persuasive argument in support of the resolution.
I strongly support the constructive initiative of establishing World Interfaith Harmony Week and would do all that I can to ensure this initiative is successful.
