President Sisi attended Christmas mass on Saturday evening at the partial opening of the new Nativity of Christ Cathedral in the new administrative capital

President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi commissioned the building of the church, the largest in the country, in January 2017 following twin terrorist attacks that killed at least 27 Coptic Egyptians at St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Cairo.

The president, who entered the cathedral along with Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II, stressed that the partial opening of the cathedral is "a message of peace and love from Egypt, not only to Egypt and the region, but to the whole world."
