A high-level conference on inter-faith dialogue and the situation of Christians around the world took place on Tuesday 1 December 2015, at the European Parliament, organised by Antonio Tajani, vice-president of Parliament, and attended by President Martin Schulz.


During his intervention, the Vice-President of COMECE, Mgr. Jean Kockerols, Auxiliary Bishop of Malines-Bruxelles, stated “International peace programmes must include Christians, so that in those areas torn apart by war and internal conflict, Christians may be able to play their part – with their rights and entitlements duly protected – in creating a secure, safe, stable society.
