Pop Francis has arrived in the United Arab Emirates, making him the first pontiff to visit an Arab Gulf state.
In a video address from the Vatican, Francis said the trip marks “a new page in the history of relations between religions, confirming that we are brothers and sisters, even though we are different.”
The pontiff spent three days in the UAE’s capital, Abu Dhabi, where he attend an interreligious conference with Muslims, Jewish and Christian leaders.
It is Pope Francis’s seventh visit to a predominantly Muslim country, signaling a continuation of improving ties between the Vatican and the Islamic world. The Pope has sought to build bridges with the Muslim world by refusing to equate Islam with violence, arguing that all religions have fundamentalist elements and religious leaders must work together to combat all forms of fundamentalism and violence.
