Visit of the European religious leaders to the EC: group photo and extracts from the common press conference

734 views

On 30 May 2011, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Jerzy Buzek, President of the EP, and Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, received around twenty senior representatives from the Christian, Jewish, Muslim religions as well as from the Buddhist communities. They discussed effective ways of rights and liberties with a view to build a Partnership for democracy and shared prosperity between Europe and its neighbourhood. They gave a common press conference after the meeting and a group photo. This was the seventh in a series of annual meetings launched by José Manuel Barroso in 2005. It was the second time that the meeting took place in the context of the Lisbon Treaty which foresees in its Art 17 that the EU maintains an "open, transparent and regular dialogue" with religion, churches and communities of conviction. This meeting testified once again of the importance that European institutions gave to this dialogue.
