Prince Charles says UK looks forward to building inter-faith bridge
February 9, 2015, 8:54 am

Britain's Crown Prince Charles said that his tour to the Middle East region, which started on Saturday, aims to build bridges among different faiths and religions.

In an interview with a BBC program broadcasted on Sunday, Prince Charles voiced his concern over the rise of extremism among youth, describing the extent to which young people are becoming radicalised as "alarming" and one of the "greatest worries".

Prince Charles believed that part of the reason some young people are radicalised is a "search for adventure and excitement at a particular age." According to a British estimation, up to 600 British people joined the armed groups in Iraq and Syria and thus security apparatuses are facing a major challenge in repelling these people.

Charles arrived in Jordan on Saturday on a two-day visit within a tour to the region that includes Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE.

He is set to arrive in Kuwait on Monday where he will meet His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahamd Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to discuss relations between the two countries and ways of promoting them.
