      Church leaders welcome climate of religious tolerance in Kuwait Egyptian
      Orthodox Church holds reception on the occasion of Egyptian Easter Season

      KUWAIT CITY, May 9: The Egyptian Orthodox Church in Kuwait held a
      reception on the occasion of the Egyptian Easter Season in honor of
      Sheikha Fariha Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah the President of the Kuwait Association
      for Ideal Family and the Goodwill Ambassador for Peace. Sheikha Fariha
      was honored in the presence of Rev Emmanuel Garib, representatives of
      various religious communities and social figures and prominent
      personalities among them was the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Bahrain to
      Kuwait Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al- Khalifa.

      During the event all those who addressed the gathering stressed on the
      importance of dialogue and cultural rapprochement between religions in
      order to ensure justice and peace. Saying Kuwait is a country which
      yearns for fraternal coexistence, love and peace, renounces sectarian
      wrangling and works to confront ignorance and aggression, the church
      leaders welcomed the climate of religious tolerance in Kuwait and
      praised HH the Amir, the government and the friendly people of Kuwait.
      Sheikh Khalifa stressed on the importance of intercultural dialogue and
      rapprochement to achieve peace and security for mankind.

      He pointed out Kuwait is a land where dialogue for love and peace is
      renewed under the wise leadership of HH the Amir of Kuwait. Al-Khalifa
      recalled his country’s hosting of the tenth session of the Conference of
      Islamic-Christian dialogue on the basis of faith King Hamad bin Isa Al
      Khalifa attaches to the importance of dialogue in achieving peace among
      peoples of the world.

      Sheikha Fariha Al-Ahmad called for staying away from sectarian clashes
      and aggravations and work together to counter ignorance and aggression
      in order to deepen the bonds of love and affection and peace in the
      country under the guidance of HH the Amir and the Crown Prince.

      She expressed her delight in participating with the Christian
      counterparts on this occasion and said “I am very happy to attend such
      occasions which remove the barriers and obstacles among the heavenly
      religions which call for peace, love and tolerance and convergence of
      views.” The head of Egyptian Orthodox Church in Kuwait Bigol Al-Anba
      Bishoy said Kuwait is a pioneer of love and peace and lauded the wisdom
      of His Highness the Amir and his directives. He described the land of
      Kuwait as “fertile” for brotherly coexistence between religions.

      He also praised the social role played by Sheikha Fariha in addition to
      coherence among persons living in this land and taking care of the
      Egyptian Christians and all Egyptians in the country. Member and a
      representative of the Council of Islamic-Christian Relations Riad
      Al-Kazimi conveyed his deepest congratulations and blessings to Pope
      Twadharos II, Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch Alkarazh Macarios, and
      wished him every success for all humanity and Egypt and its people
      progress, prosperity, security and safety.
