Intellectual exchanges between Asia, Europe pushed

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (11 July) -- Faith-based partner organizations of the Asia-Europe meeting (ASEM) are pushing for the intellectual exchanges between Asia and Europe countries in terms of drawing people's trust, religious and humanitarian motivation.

Ulama League of the Philippines regional chairman Aleem Mahmod Mala Adilao, who attended the recently-concluded 4th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) held in Amsterdam said 42 member countries that participated in the worldwide ASEM shared their own ethical values to promote mutual understanding and respect through interaction among different countries of the world.

Inter-faith organizations committed to help reach to the poorest members in Asia and Europe and mobilize resources at various levels.

Member countries also committed to reject violence and hatred in all world religions, respect the freedom of religion and belief and take necessary actions to combat discrimination based on religion and ultimately promote peaceful resolution of conflicts.

ASEM global partners also agreed to work together for the reduction of poverty, narrow economic gaps and contribute in achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals by drawing social capital in terms of people and humanity, Adilao said.

The recent Asia-Europe meeting was an informal process of dialogue and cooperation that brings together 27 European Union member states and European Commission, 16 Asian countries and the ASEAN Secretariat.

The dialogue held at Amsterdam aims to address political, economic and cultural issues for purposes of strengthening the relationship between the regions in a spirit of mutual respect and equal partnership, Chairman Adilao said. (PIA) [top]
