On the occasion of 2019, the Year of Tolerance in the United Arab Emirates, Mohamed Khalifa Matar Al-Mazrouei honoured a number of Egyptian icons this week.

Al-Mazrouei is among the pioneers who obtained a diploma from the Institute of International Tolerance in the UAE.

He chose Egypt as the "mother of the world and the heart of the Arab nation" -- according to his statements -- to implement his project on tolerance, and in this context, he visited Al-Azhar and St. Mark’s cathedral.

He also honoured Ambassador Mohamed El-Orabi, former Egyptian foreign minister; the president of El-Orman charity Hossam El-Qabbani; and the Egyptian historian Mohamed Refaat El-Imam, since most of his scientific works and community activities contribute to the acceptance of the other, namely tolerance in all its meanings.

Also among the honourees were journalist and editor-in-chief of ONA Institution for Press and Media Magdy El-Galad, and the president of the Armenian National Commission in Egypt, Armen Mazloumian.

At the evening, Mohamed Refaat El-Imam granted some of his works to Al-Mazrouei, who in turn presented the shield of tolerance to the Egyptian historian.
