Mr. President Thank you for having accepted to share with us in family. It is something that is very new in our country starting from Upper Volta to Burkina Faso.

Roch Marc Christian Kabore mentioned the happiness of sharing with the Muslim community before wishing to receive all the blessings. President Kabore magnified also the inter-religious dialogue and recalled the imperial necessity of social cohesion in Burkina Faso.
I am very happy to break the fast with muslims but also I am happy to notice the presence of his eminency the cardinal Ouedraogo and Pastor Samuel Yameogo. And this is a witness that the inter-religious dialogue is a reality in Burkina Faso. It is a reality and the cardinal just quoted it. At the highest level of our religious communities, leaders are meeting, discussing on issues. As I use to say in Burkina Faso either we are Muslim or catholic, protestant nor believer of a traditional religion we met every day together for happy and sad events. I would like to congratulate this general availability and the mutual respect of our respective religions. I think that this is an important asset for us. Said Rock Marc Christian Kabore.
The President of Faso also congratulated the work done by Muslims’ community to fight against religious intolerance. Roc March Christian Kabore calls the community to keep on doing this work because for him Burkina Faso will be built only if real fraternity reigns over different religious communities.
