Al-Jarwan visited the Maronite Patriarch Mar Bishara Boutros Al-Rahi at the Patriarchal Palace in Bkerki today, at the head of a delegation from the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace, where he briefed him on his international activities and praised Bkerki’s efforts in raising the values of dialogue, defending human rights, accepting the other and respecting human principles.
The Patriarch commended the work of GCTP and its objectives and achievements and stressed the need to activate cultural action in order to achieve tolerance and peace in the world through ensuring the sustainable development of human life.
“We are in dire need of education on the basis of peace, because the great countries do not like peace, they love the culture of war. I salute the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace for standing against this global trend,” he said.
The Patriarch stressed the importance of cooperation and coordination between the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace and the Maronite Patriarchate to participate in various activities related to the most important goals of the Council.
