(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Iraqi Sunni and Shia clerics signed an agreement Monday (July 8th) pledging to adopt moderate discourse renouncing violence and terrorism during Ramadan, which begins this week.

The agreement focuses on shared values among Muslim sects and the importance of national unity, said Sheikh Khaled al-Mulla, head of the Iraqi cabinet's scholars committee.

Many clerics and groups representing Sunnis and Shias attended the Basra meeting, he said, adding that religious events and occasions during the holy month will affirm moderate discourse.
