Representatives of religions from nearly 150 countries will convene in Kyoto on Nov. 29 and 30 to discuss disarmament and mark the 30th anniversary of the World Conference on Religion and Peace, according to WCRP officials in Japan.

Representatives of various religions as well as disarmament researchers and advocates will participate in the two-day event and adopt action plans to push for the scrapping of nuclear weapons, the officials said.

Prior to the forum, there will be a symposium on resolution of conflicts and a lecture by former West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, the officials said. Some of the events, such as the symposium, are open to the public.
