HOLY SEE EXPRESSES APPRECIATION FOR PAM’S FUNDAMENTAL OBJECTIVES

HOLY SEE EXPRESSES APPRECIATION FOR PAM’S FUNDAMENTAL OBJECTIVES
The Holy See today expressed its appreciation for the fundamental goals of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean, when Dr. Anna Maria Abramonte, representative of the Holy See, an observer to PAM, addressed the Mediterranean parliamentarians during the works of the VI PAM Plenary Session being held in Palermo, Italy.
Dr. Abramonte said that the Holy See notes that from its very beginning the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean has placed emphasis on the importance of interreligious and cultural dialogue as being an integral part of its objectives. “It is proper, after all, that political and civil society should recognize the role of religion in the public sphere and the religious dimension of the human person. It could not be otherwise given that the overwhelming majority of the world’s population is made up of religious believers”, the Holy See representative added.
The Holy See also recalled the fact that it has participated as an observer on several occasions at the various meetings and initiatives of PAM during the last years and thanked the Assembly for the invitation to join as an Observer to the VI Plenary Session.
