World Interfaith Harmony Week 2012

UN World Interfaith Harmony Week

A World Interfaith Harmony Week observance took place February 7, 2012 in the UN General Assembly Hall on the theme "Common Ground for the Common Good." The President of the 66th Session of the General Assembly, H.E. Mr. Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, said in announcing the event: "In our conflict-ridden world, I believe it is important to recognize the historical good done by people of all faiths in many of the areas of the work of the United Nations as well as the current successful partnerships in various parts of the world between UN agencies and religious groups particularly in meeting the humanitarian needs of disaster-stricken people."
