Muscat: Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al Azhar Al Sherif issued a call for humanity to come together to promote human fraternity.

As part of their joint appeal, the two signed the 'Human Fraternity Document' in Abu Dhabi.

Framing their appeal "in the name of human fraternity that embraces all human beings, unites them and renders them equal", the two leaders opened their document by saying: "Faith leads a believer to see in the other a brother or sister to be supported and loved.

"Through faith in God, who has created the universe, creatures and all human beings (equal on account of his mercy), believers are called to express this human fraternity by safeguarding creation and the entire universe and supporting all persons, especially the poorest and those most in need."



Through the document, Pope Francis and the Grand Imam declared what they described as "the adoption of a culture of dialogue as the path; mutual cooperation as the code of conduct; reciprocal understanding as the method and standard."
