Malaysia: Interfaith Dialogue High on Agenda New Ambassador to Holy See
Malaysia’s newly appointed ambassador to the Holy See from Christian-majority Sarawak has termed his selection as “unique” and has vowed to work towards interfaith dialogue and the well-being of Malaysians.
“It is a bit unique, and we do not have trade and investments. What we are doing is to promote interfaith dialogue between the different faiths all over the world,” said Hendy Assan who is the third Bidayuh indigenous tribe member to be appointed to the post.
The first-ever Bidayuh ambassador was John Tenewe Nuek who has retired.
