While expressing their appreciation for the opportunity to meet a few days after the conclusion of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, both delegations gave thanks to God for their friendship and fruitful cooperation in promoting constructive relations with individuals and communities belonging to other religious traditions.

The priority of the meeting’s agenda was to discuss and to deliberate upon a proposed joint document on Education for Peace, following similar joint projects in the past.
It was followed by the exchange of news and views on their respective activities over the past year and planned activities.

Both the PCID and the IRDC agreed to continue their collaboration, in particular, the work relating to the joint document on Education for Peace, given the urgency of the matter in today’s global context.
