BEIJING, Sept. 11 (APP): China’s top political advisor Jia Qinglin urged the country’s religious circles to organize high-level teams for overseas exchanges as the first session of the Third China Committee on Religion and Peace (CCRP) kicked off Thursday.“With the support of the (Communist) Party and the government, the CCRP has been strengthening the cooperation and exchange with other countries’ religious circles and making China’s religious policies known to the world,” said Jia.

He called upon CCRP members to enhance communication with overseas friends and contribute their abilities and wisdom to ensuring the country’s ethnic unity, religious harmony and social stability.

Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference on the occasion congratulated the newly-elected CCRP leaders and extended his best wishes to all religious people across the country.
