16 March 2013


The President of the Islamic Communities of Spain, Riay Tatary, expects the new Pope to maintain an open dialogue profile and have a spirit of approchement towards others, not only to Catholics, but to all the great religions that “follow a same god. ”

Riay Tatary, expressed hope that the new Pope would follow the lead of interreligious dialogue that his predecessor Emeritus Pontiff, Benedict XVI, kept.

“If there is peace and cooperation between Christians and Muslims” for sure there will be peace in the world “because interreligious dialogue can promote coexistence, especially among members of the great religions,” concluded Tatary.
