Blinken describes Abrahamic Family House as 'future of region'


US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has described Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi as "exemplary model for active exchange between faiths", during his Middle East tour.

Taking to his official social media handle, he said it's a "true testament to the UAE’s commitment to peaceful coexistence among Abrahamic faiths. This is what the future of the region should look like".

Blinken also wrote a message on a tile, which read "light in the darkness".

Located on Saadiyat Island, the multi-faith place of worship houses a mosque, synagogue and church.

Blinken, who is on a Middle East tour, held talks with President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, discussing the urgent need to open humanitarian corridors to facilitate the delivery of medical and relief aid to the Gaza Strip.
