On 6 May 2020, the Religious Leaders of the main faith communities of Cyprus, who form the Religious Track of the Cyprus Peace Process under the Auspices of the Embassy of Sweden came together for their first virtual High Level Meeting.
This was the first time in the history of the Religious Track that they were physically divided, due to restrictions put in place by state authorities in order to deal with the COVID 19 pandemic.
The religious leaders met for two hour sharing their concerns and priorities with each other. They also adopted the attached Joint Communique where they stressed the importance of physical distancing instead of social distancing, solidarity, unity, compassion and hope. Please see the full Joint Communique adopted in English attached.
