The delegation comprised Pas secretary-general Mustafa Ali; Pas national unity bureau chief Mujahid Yusof Rawa, tipped by some to be a future Pas leader; Tasik Gelugor Pas information chief Abdul Rahman Kasim, a key figure in Muslim-Christian dialogue initiatives; Harakah managing director Rosli Yaakop, a former deputy governor of Bank Negara; and Harakah columnist Shukor Harun.

They discussed inter-religious dialogue, how to promote greater Muslim-Christian cooperation and understanding, and ways to curb if not eliminate religious extremism.

Julian was installed as archbishop on 8 October.
