Religious figures play a large role in formation of spiritual values ​​in society. The President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov announced at the International Conference «Islam and Orthodoxy — Religions of the World.»

According to him, the state should be an ally with traditional religions.

«The state and religion have common goals — raising a highly moral person who loves his neighbor, his country, as well as maintaining the peace and stability in society. Formation of spiritual values ​​in society cannot occur without participation of religious figures,» the head of state noted.

He reminded participants of the conference that in order to maintain socio-political stability, constant inter-religious dialogue was important.
