Hundreds of Muslim leaders from around the world have endorsed Saudi King Abdullah's recent call for intensified interfaith dialogue in order to dampen global conflict and demonstrate Islam's commitment to solving world problems.

The declaration came on Friday (June 6) at the close of a three-day conference in Islam's holy city of Mecca to discuss Abdullah's surprise announcement in March that he wants to launch a new dialogue among Muslims, Christians and Jews.
