WCC and Center for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue commemorate 25 years of fruitful dialogue

Signing a celebratory certificate commemorating 25 years of fruitful dialogue, leaders from the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the Center for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization in Tehran met online on 27 October.

The certificate, jointly prepared in English and Persian by the WCC and the Center for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue, is to be sent to the more than 50 participants in the bilateral dialogue over the last 25 years, thanking each of them for their contribution.

Beginning with a meeting in Geneva in 1995, and alternating between there and Tehran, the WCC and the Center for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue have met regularly, addressing a number of themes including: "Religion and the Contemporary World,” “Religions and Globalization,” “Religion and Peaceful Coexistence" and “Spirituality and Modernity.”

WCC interim general secretary Rev. Prof. Dr Ioan Sauca exchanged greetings with Dr Abuzar Ebrahimi Torkaman, head of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization, and Dr Mohammad Mahdi Tashkiri, director general of the Center.
