Saudi Arabia among 3 nations launching center for interreligious dialogue

Catholic World News - November 26, 2012

Saudi Arabia, Spain, and Austria have established the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID), an organization whose purpose, according to its web site, is “to enable, empower and encourage dialogue among followers of different religions and cultures around the world.” The center is named after Saudi Arabia’s current king, who assumed office in 2005.

The Holy See is a "founding observer" to KAICIID, which opened in Vienna on November 26. Father Miguel Ayuso Guixot, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, represents the Holy See on the board of directors, which includes members of the major world religions.
