The office of the supreme religious authority, Mr. Ali al-Sistani, issued a statement in which it touched on the details of the supreme authority with the UN representative, Jeanine Blaskhart.
Below is the text of the statement:
“In the name of God, the
Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. During the meeting, His Eminence stressed the importance of concerted efforts to promote a culture of peaceful coexistence, reject violence and hatred, and establish the values of harmony based on caring for rights and mutual respect among adherents of different
and intellectual trends.
His Eminence pointed out that the tragedies suffered by many peoples and ethnic and social groups in many parts of the world - as a result of the intellectual and religious persecution practiced against them, the suppression of basic freedoms and the absence of social justice - played a role in the emergence of some extremist movements that use blind violence against defenseless civilians and attack their Religious centers and archaeological sites for others who differ with it in thought or belief.
His Eminence stressed the need to address the background of these phenomena, which are rejected and condemned in all circumstances, and to work hard to achieve a degree of justice and tranquility in various societies befitting human dignity as God Almighty wanted it, which contributes to reducing the atmosphere conducive to the spread of extremist ideas.
His Eminence expressed his appreciation for the efforts of the United Nations in this regard, wishing Mr. Moratinos success in the performance of his mission, and entrusted him with his greetings to Mr. Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations. End 29/33
