At a Naypyitaw advisory forum on national reconciliation and peace throughout Myanmar this week, the state counsellor and religious leaders of differing faiths urged people to respect one another’s faith, in order to bring about a more peaceful society.

The forum, organized by the group Religion for Peace-Myanmar (RfP), was the second part of an advisory forum held over two days, on May 7 and 8. Discussions focused on five key topics: access to education, women and youth empowerment, building unity among diverse ethnic groups, accepting the importance of differing faiths and the ongoing issues in Rakhine State.
