DAMASCUS- The Minister of Awqaf (Religious Endowments), Mohammad Abdul-Sattar al-Sayyed on Tuesday, highlighted the importance of spreading the culture of dialogue and exchange of ideas and strengthening the concept of religious fraternity and its role in spreading peace, security and stability in the world.

"What brings the Syrians together is their love for homeland and honest commitment and loyalty to its principles," said al-Sayyed, noting that this was further consolidated through the values and beliefs of Islam and Christianity.

Al-Sayyed's remarks came during a meeting with Mar Ignatius Zakka I Iwas, Patriarch of Antioch an All the East, Supreme Head of the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church, and Ieronymos II, Archbishop of Athens and All Greece, at Mar Afram Monastery of the Assyrian Church.
