At the Global Government Summit in Dubai, UAE, Pope Francis sent a video message to the participants in this international meeting in which he said that he saw a country translated tolerance into reality.
He added: Dear friends, peace be upon you! I send you my greetings and wish you success in your endeavors. I hold in my heart the recent visit to the United Arab Emirates and the warm welcome it received. "I saw a modern state looking to the future without forgetting its roots. I have seen a state that seeks to translate words such as tolerance, brotherhood, mutual respect and freedom into initiatives and actions on the ground.
