I congratulate Kosovo’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for launching the Interfaith Kosovo Initiative, and for providing opportunities to faith communities for interacting with each other.

We must work together for greater national and religious awareness and responsibility. Harmonizing nationalism and religion as two complementary elements requires cultivating and respecting them both, without entangling or singling them out, without overestimating or underestimating them, thereby ensuring our society’s progress.

Religious communities should cooperate better for the common good of all, because goodness, justice, and truth are fundamental privileges for all, they are not “owned” by anyone. Religion can contribute towards addressing prejudices and building new bridges of integration through pluralism, interethnic and interreligious dialogue, through coexistence and cooperation founded upon the power of truth and inspiration of love.
