4th Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions
Astana has once again become a center of inter-religious dialogue bringing together Muslims and Christians, Jews and Buddhists as well as representatives of Hinduism, Shintoism, and Zoroastrianism.
The Fourth Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions has opened in Astana. It assembled over 350 delegates from 40 countries. Representatives of leading religions of the world gathered at the round table to discuss the most pressing present-day issues. During the opening of the congress, Nursultan Nazarbayev spoke about the global crisis of moral values.
Tolerance, peace and harmony are the things people should strive for. Kazakhstan has long demonstrated an example of how to build a dialogue between religions and nationalities, and today every citizen of Kazakhstan has the right to choose where to go - to church, mosque or synagogue. Mutual respect is the main principle of Kazakhstan's society.
