International Peace Convoys spread culture of peace and co-existence in different countries worldwide

ABU DHABI, 29th June, 2015 — International Peace Convoys, organised by the Muslim Council of Elders and chaired by the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar and Chairman of the Council, Dr. Ahmed El Tayeb, started its five-day long second phase on Thursday to spread the culture of peace in areas devastated by the sectarian conflicts worldwide.

The campaign aims to vent religious tension and promote societal peace in Africa, Asia, Europe and America.

The first convoy headed to Paris and met a number of members of the French Senate at the invitation of the Senate to attend the round table discussion on interfaith dialogue.

While in Paris, the first convoy members discussed the important role that could be played by the Muslim Council of Elders through communication with different cultures so as to spread the culture of peace and coexistence, as well as correct misconceptions about Islam and Muslims.

The second convoy members headed to the Central African Republic, where they met religious figures who briefed them on the ethno-religious conflicts that have devastated the central African country.

The third convoy headed to Rome, while the fourth headed to Indonesia to spread the culture of tolerance and co-existence.
