World Interfaith Harmony Week

Mr. Apakan (Turkey)

We welcome the adoption of resolution 65/5 on World Interfaith Harmony Week and the initiative undertaken by the delegation of Jordan. On this occasion, I would like to extend a warm welcome to His Royal Highness Prince Ghazi Bin Mohammad and to thank Jordan for introducing this noble initiative. We are honoured to co-sponsor the resolution and pleased to see it embraced by the wider membership. This shows the commitment of the world community to making the world more peaceful and harmonious for future generations.

We believe that this call for peace, tolerance and mutual understanding will further contribute to the promotion of a global culture of peace around the world. For its part, Turkey will continue its efforts to promote our common values of peace, tolerance and respect for humanity.
