The issues of ethnic and confessional stability in Kazakhstan, as well as the part of religious organisations in maintaining peace and harmony were discussed at the meeting.
Special attention was paid to the forthcoming celebration by the Russian Orthodox Church of the 10th anniversary of its diocese in Kazakhstan.
At the end of the meeting, Metropolitan Alexander of Astana and Kazakhstan emphasized that this event coincided with the 10th anniversary of the first Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions held in our country.
“There are two pillars of spirituality in our land: traditional Islam and Orthodox Christianity. Our President holds them for the people to live in peace and good mutual understanding and consent,” Metropolitan Alexander of Astana and Kazakhstan said.
He also noted that today, thanks to the policy pursued by the President, Kazakhstan represents an example of harmonious development and public consent.
