The President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca commended the Connecting through Culture event saying that such cultural events are a celebration of diversity.
The President said this when attending the 4th edition of the Connecting through Culture event organised by the Ta’ Xbiex Local Council in collaboration with various foreign embassies in Malta and CORE Platform.
The President said that such events encourage diversity and they foster an environment of respect towards different people. These events create a safe and respectful space in which the beauty of diversity, the building of new friendships, and the nurturing of respect and dignity to all can be shared.
“Positive peace means the celebration of diversity, ending inequalities, promoting inclusion, and giving respect and dignity to each and every one of us, whoever we are and wherever we come from”.
The President praised the Ta’ Xbiex local council for turning Connecting through Culture into an annual event.
