Iran, France to Hold Interfaith Dialogue

The first interreligious dialogue between Iran and France will be held in Tehran next week.

The Islamic Culture and Relations Organization (ICRO) will host the event on January 7-8.

It features the importance of the environment in Islam and Catholic Christianity.

A four-strong French delegation has travelled to Tehran to take part in the talks.

ICRO’s Center for Interreligious Dialogue is organizing the two-day event.

Protection of environment according to Islamic and Catholic Christian texts, responsibility of religious leaders and faithful in protection of environment, and role of extremism in damaging the environment will be among the topics of discussion.

The idea of holding interfaith dialogue between Iran and France was first raised during a trip to Paris by head of ICRO’s Center for Interreligious Dialogue Hojat-ol-Islam Mohammad Mehdi Taskhiri.
