A Glimpse of the World Congress of Religions in Astana

The Congress of the Leaders of World and Traditional Religions is a unique interfaith forum, convened every three years in Astana at the initiative of President Nursultan Nazarbayev. For 15 years, this landmark forum has played an important role in the rapprochement of cultures and civilizations, in searching for answers to the key challenges of our time. “Religious Leaders for a Safe World” was the main topic of the Sixth Congress, which was held October 10-11, 2018 in the capital of Kazakhstan.

Ramesh Jaura, Director-General and Editor-in-Chief of the International Press Syndicate Group and its flagship news agency IDN-InDepthNews, and Katsuhiro Asagiri, Multimedia Director, travelled to Astana to provide a glimpse of the Congress, admittedly a unique event of its kind.

The following are articles and videos the IDN-INPS team produced by way of throwing open a window on the Astana conference.
