The President of Romania at Sant'Egidio: peace, ecumenical dialogue and European integration at the centre of talks

printable version

 This morning, from 10 to 11, the President of the Republic of Romania, Klaus Werner Johannis, visited the Community of Sant'Egidio in Rome. During the meeting, long and cordial, the Romanian Head of State spoke with the president of Sant'Egidio, Marco Impagliazzo and the leaders of the Community, addressing a few issues on which there has been a fruitful collaboration for a long time.

Much space was reserved for the work for peace carried out by the Community in the world and, in particular, for the role played by interreligious dialogue.

Recalling the importance for Romania of the ecumenical work that led to the Prayer for Peace, organised by Sant'Egidio in Bucharest in 1998, and to the visit of John Paul II the following year, they presented the international meeting to be held next September in Tirana in the "spirit of Assisi".

There was also talk of the crisis in Ukraine and of the importance of the work for European integration, as a strong point of the development for the countries that belong to the Union, in addition to the main issues that are emerging in the Romanian society in recent years.
