If we enhance the religious tolerance, we will also strengthen the democracy in the society, and the state itself. If we are more tolerant, many unnecessary conflicts will be evaded and we will keep the peace and increase the security in the society.”, stated Aleksandar Aleksikj, student at the Faculty of Security, participating in one of the visits.
