This event was held through cooperation between the government and the Indonesia Inter-Religious Council (IRC) initiated by Din Syamsuddin, a national Muslim figure.
"The delegations of Myanmar’s inter-religious figures were here to share their views on how Indonesia maintains inter-faith harmony," Syamsuddin remarked.
According to Syamsuddin, the vice president had highlighted Indonesia’s founding principles of Pancasila and Bhineka Tunggal Ika that had helped people lead a harmonious existence. Furthermore, religious moderation is expected to serve as a reference for other countries home to different religions.
Leader of Myanmar's delegations Cardinal Charles Bo lauded the meeting and is optimistic of taking a cue from Indonesia on equality among people of different faiths.
"We have seen a wide body of experience on how this Muslim-majority nation upholds equality without any discrimination," Bo remarked.
