At the occasion of the Islamic festival of Eid al Fitr (the end of Ramadan), the Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, general secretary of the WCC has extended greetings to the worldwide Muslim community in a message issued on 17 July.

Reflections on the past, present and the future of Christian-Jewish relations were shared by Dr Clare Amos, the WCC programme executive for inter-religious dialogue and cooperation, at a major conference of the International Council of Christians and Jews in Rome.

Expressing shock at the killings in Kuwait, Tunisia and France that took place on 26 June, the WCC acting general secretary Georges Lemopoulos said, “I grieve with those who have lost loved ones, and those who have been injured as a result of these appalling acts, which have marred the month of Ramadan, sacred to Muslims everywhere.”
