His Majesty King Abdullah II on Thursday, March 1, delivered a speech at the "Islamic Heritage: Enhancing Harmony and Coexistence" Conference, held in New Delhi in the presence of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

A large number of Islamic scholars and intellectual, political, religious, media leaders also attended the conference, which was organized by the India Islamic Centre.

In his address, King Abdullah said, “It is why my highest priority is serving Jordan’s people encouraging their talents, struggling against their hardships, and securing a better future for all. And I am not alone. My fellow Jordanians, Muslims and Christians alike, have worked together to build the future, not only for our country, but for neighbors near and far, including hosting millions of refugees from regional turmoil.”

He added: "Jordanians are working globally for dialogue and peace. Among many things, my country was honored to initiate World Interfaith Harmony Week an annual UN observance promoting mutual understanding. And the text of our resolution specifically included language to be inclusive of all people of good will, including both Muslims and Hindus."

He went on to say, “So inclusion is the path to the coexistence we need to build strong successful countries. It is our strongest defense against turmoil and our greatest promise of a future of prosperity, security, and peace.”

King Abdullah concluded by saying: “Today, let all people, Muslim and non-Muslim, reach out to each other. In the hands of friendship, we have the power to grasp a better future for our entire world.
