Ban Ki-Moon intends to fill key UN post to promote dialogue among cultures and religions

Rome, (APA)- Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon confirmed in Italy that he plans to appoint a High Representative to promote dialogue between cultures, religions and ethnic groups, building on the work done by the Alliance of Civilizations, the international initiative set up to encourage reconciliation.

Speaking to journalists in
Rome after a meeting with the citys mayor, Walter Veltroni, Mr. Ban said the two had discussed the urgency and the importance of intra-religious dialogue.

Last year the High-Level Group of the Alliance of Civilizations, which was launched by Mr. Bans predecessor Kofi Annan following a proposal by the Prime Ministers of Spain and Turkey, issued a report calling for a series of measures, legal and otherwise, in education, media, youth and migration to build bridges between different communities and promote a culture of respect.

The report also recommended the creation of a High Representative post to assist the UN Secretary-General to try to defuse crises that arise at the intersection of culture and politics, along with measures aimed at restarting the
Middle East peace process and encouraging political pluralism in Muslim countries.

Mr. Ban said he hoped that, with the aid of the High Representative, we will promote a much better and secure world at this time.
