ABU DHABI: Year of Tolerance sent a particular message at a time when there is a great deal of intolerance in the world, Fred Kempe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Atlantic Council, has said.

“I think having a year of tolerance at a time where there is a great deal of intolerance in the world, sent a particular message at this time,” he told the Emirates News Agency, WAM, in Abu Dhabi.

President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has declared 2019 as the ‘Year of Tolerance’, highlighting the UAE as a global capital for tolerance, via its various legislative and policy-oriented goals to enhance the role of the country in instilling the values of co-existence and peace in local, regional and international communities.

Kempe, who is here to attend the Global Energy Forum as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, added, “When you come to the UAE, you experience openness, tolerance, and embracing of different cultures and religions, which is a good example for other parts of the world.”

He said during his visit to the Louvre Museum Abu Dhabi last year, he “felt there not only tolerance but a look at history through art in a way that accurately portray all religions, history and culture.”
