Russia's Supreme Mufti Sheikh ul-Islam Talgat Tadzhuddin said in his address to conference participants: "We (Islam and Orthodoxy - editor's note) are religions of one God."
The Russian supreme mufti noted that the dialogue between Islam and Orthodoxy has lasted for centuries. This dialogue, he said, has grown into fruitful cooperation.
In addition, Talgat Hazrat noted an ayah of the Quran as the most important principle of inter-confessional dialogue: "Help one another in acts of righteousness and piety, and do not help one another in sin and transgression."
