M'sia establishes diplomatic ties with Vatican

The establishment of' diplomatic relations between' Malaysia and' the Vatican is undoubtedly a fairly positive and historic decision made in Malaysia's diplomacy. However, there are still some really undeniable problems relating to inter-faith relations to be resolved domestically. Hopefully, the relations' would facilitate more civilisational dialogues within Malaysia on the twin principles of equality and mutual respect. Listening to one another (and reading each other''s books, articles or other publications)' with patience and equanimity' could help to bring about good results to dialogues and ideational exchanges of all kinds.
