11 February 2013

The president of the Union of Islamic Communities of Spain, Riay Tatary has expressed on Monday his respect and value for the resignation of Benedict XVI to the papacy due to his advanced age, as his role is one of “a lot of responsability”.

During his declarations, Tatary has highlighted the attitude of Benedict XVI as head of the Catholic Church of visiting several Muslim countries, through which he has “removed” the “damage” that he had caused in the relationship with Islam in the beginning of his pontificate.
