MAKKAH — The Muslim World League (MWL) welcomed the pioneering international project promoting a culture of peace and tolerance.

The global project was proposed by a number of Arab and Islamic and other key counties in which Saudi Arabia was at the forefront.

The Arab, Islamic countries' draft resolution was supported and approved at the United Nations General Assembly which unanimously adopted it to promote a culture of peace and tolerance to protect religious sites.

The MWL affirmed in a statement issued by its Secretary-General and Chairman of the Association of Muslim Scholars Sheikh Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa its permanent stance in condemning all forms of extremism, violence, and terrorism targeting religious and other sites, with its complete rejection and continuous confrontation of hate speech and racism with all its pretexts.

The statement added that the MWL stands in support of the culture of peace and harmony and dialogue and tolerance, describing the civilized communication with its "effective" dialogues and initiatives as the most important pillar in consolidating awareness to overcome the threats of clash and the religious, cultural and ethnic conflict.

The MWL reaffirmed its declared stance regarding all international efforts calling for spreading and strengthening the culture of peace and tolerance among followers of religions and cultures.

The MWL secretary-general also indicated that more than 1,200 muftis and scholars from among the scholars of the Islamic nation and more than 4,500 Islamic thinkers unanimously agreed on the contents of that international vision in their historical document, Makkah Al-Mukarramah document, prepared at the international conference organized by the MWLunder the auspices of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman.
