Albania contributes to today’s civilization with its most precious asset: tolerance and ethnic and religious harmony. This was the message that was sent out by the heads of the Albanian state during the Second Plenary Session of the International Parliament for Tolerance and Peace which convened in Tirana.
So, according to the Albanian president, Ilir Meta, terrorism and religious extremism are taking advantage of “globalization of propaganda, while their followers are using non conventional instruments of violence to inspire division between civilization, nations and different cultures”.
Among others, Meta stressed the fact that this forum and this unique international platform of the “World Council for Tolerance and Peace”, which joins together the efforts and the agendas of governments and non government organizations is in line with the objectives of the UN, contributing for the promotion of peace and tolerance between nations, fight against racial and gender discrimination, religious and ethnic extremism and the creation of bridges between civilizations and different cultures. /ibna/
