All participants confirmed their interest in holding regular meetings of the highest representatives of the Churches. They affirmed that the exchange of information and cooperation on practical issues will strengthen an understanding and build unity among Christians. Such actions will be a positive signal towards society, that in spite of differences, the churches are able to collaborate in a positive way on common themes which are important not only for Christians but also all of society.
