A group of Christian and Muslim leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean has signed a statement denouncing “all acts of violence or persecution committed against a person or community” and the “desecration and destruction of sacred places and religious symbols.”
The president and secretary of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue were present at the meeting, which took place in Buenos Aires. The Argentine government and the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization also sponsored the meeting.
