J. de Venecia: Address to 32nd International Leadership Conference

August 26, 2018

We had pointed out before that the successful dynamics of North Korea’s nuclear development and delivery system could be channeled to economic mobilization. We added that the “long-suspended Six-Nation Talks could have a business-focused auxiliary to develop economic joint ventures for deployment in the Korean north.” We believe that the potential of the two Koreas in cooperating together or united in peace could eventually lead to a prosperous second- or first-world nation in the third decade of the 21st century.

J. Birdi: Address to 32nd International Leadership Conference

August 26, 2018

If religious and faith leaders are seen talking to one another, sitting with one another and sharing a meal with one another, then that will have a very positive effect on members of their congregation and also on other people who see this happening. Cooperation amongst religious leaders is very important and has to take place at an international, national and local level for there to be peace at all these levels.

The mode of relations between religion and state as it is applied in Indonesia [is]based on the philosophy of Pancasila, which recognizes as its first principle the Oneness of God, that is, the universal God belongs to every religious group in the country.

Y. Miyake: Address to 32nd International Leadership Conference

August 26, 2018

I have attended more than 200 international conferences over the past 40 years and more than 1,000 interfaith meetings in Japan. However … it is hard to say that notable results have been obtained. The answer is easy. In short, it arises from a lack of knowledge of the religious leaders who attend meetings of this kind. Of course, I don’t mean to say that they lack insight into the faith to which they themselves belong; in that case their insight is extremely good, whether it be an archbishop, an imam or a guru. The lack of knowledge that I point out here refers to other religions to which you do not belong, or a religion that is denied by your religion.
