BAHREIN FORUM FOR DIALOGUE

EAST AND WEST FOR HUMAN COEXISTENCE


In an international environment deteriorated by rising tensions and amid what Pope Francis has repeatedly described as a "Piecemeal World War III", upon the invitation of His Majesty Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, King of Bahrain, the Holy Father will address the Conference organized by the Bahrain Forum for Dialogue under the theme "East and West for Human Coexistence".

Furthering the path inaugurated by the historic Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, jointly signed in 2019 by Pope Francis and H.E. Sheikh Ahmed el Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al Azhar, the Conference will focus on the themes of peaceful coexistence and interfaith dialogue as means of promoting peace.
