Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Elders Meets the President of Timor-Leste, Affirming the Role of the Document on Human Fraternity in Promoting Global Peace

The Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Elders, Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam, met with José Ramos-Horta, the President of Timor-Leste, to discuss ways to enhance mutual cooperation in promoting the values of tolerance and peaceful coexistence.

During the meeting, the two sides explored mechanisms to broaden the utilization of the principles outlined in the Document on Human Fraternity, signed by His Eminence Dr. Ahmed el-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar and President of the Muslim Council of Elders, and His Holiness Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church, in Abu Dhabi in 2019. This includes enhancing awareness and mutual understanding among different religions and sects, as well as emulating the model of Timor-Leste, which declared the Document on Human Fraternity as a national document and incorporated it into educational curricula.

The pair also affirmed that as the fifth anniversary of the signing of this pivotal document in modern human history approaches, the world now more than ever requires the practical application of the principles of the Document on Human Fraternity in the face of global challenges such as wars, conflicts, and humanitarian crises.
