Denmark to host conference on religious dialogue to calm cartoon crisis
23/02/2006 COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -
Denmark will host a conference next month to promote religious dialogue
following the uproar over the Prophet Mohammad cartoons, the Foreign Ministry announced Thursday. The government will also give "a significant financial contribution" to a U.N. program aimed at overcoming prejudice between Islam and the West, and support an Islamic festival in Copenhagen, Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller said in a statement.
The conference on religious and cultural dialogue will take place in the Danish capital on March 10, ministry officials said.
"This conference will bring together the prominent Islamic preacher Amr Khaled, two Islamic scholars from the Arab world and three Danish experts," Moeller said. He said the government was planning a range of initiatives to promote "respectful dialogue," partly drawing on advice given by Muslim countries.
"In Denmark there is a genuine respect for the religious feelings of other people and we acknowledge that many Muslims felt gravely insulted by these controversial drawings," the foreign minister said.
Ministry officials said they would contact Arab and international media to spread the minister's message, and posted a link of his videotaped statement on the ministry's Web page.
