Prime Minster Borut Pahor and other members of the Council of Religious Institutions of the Holy Land met on July 27 for a working-breakfast meeting. Bishop William Shomali, Auxiliary Bishop of Jerusalem, joined them.

The Slovenian Prime Minister is currently visiting Israel and the Palestinian territories. Besides meeting with political leaders, he also wanted to meet with religious leaders, who play an important role in favor of peace, especially in Jerusalem. He listened to their opinions and emphasized the need for peaceful coexistence between Christians, Jews, and Muslims. “The harmony between the diverse communities can effectively contribute to a solution to the conflict,” he said, inviting the religious leaders to be strongly involved in the process of peace.
