      Abune Paulos Urges Rich Nations to Back MDGs Attainment Efforts

      World Council of Churches President and Patriarch of the Ethiopian
      Orthodox Church Abune Paulos has called upon developed countries to
      extend support in a strengthened way to help developing countries
      achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

      In a statement the Patriarchate sent to ENA Friday, the President
      made the call addressing a meeting of world religious leaders held in
      Moscow, Russia, to discuss peace and poverty.

      He said developed nations should work for ensuring fair trade
      globally and help developing countries attain MDGs.

      Abune Paulos said that dialogue and tolerance is key for the
      prevalence of peace, and added that there should be an equitable
      share of resources for a stable world.

      In a resolution the religious leaders adopted, they stressed the need
      to give value to humanity more than anything else, the statement
      said.

      Russian President Vladmir Putin said on his part that he would
      present the resolution of the religious leaders to the rich nations'
      conference to be held soon in Petersburg.

      Some 49 religious leaders of Christian, Muslim, Buddhism and other
      beliefs attended the meeting held July 3-5, 2006.

      A six-member delegation led by Abune Paulos returned home Friday.
