Al-Tayyeb welcomed the Coptic pope and the church's delegation at Al-Azhar mosque, praising the special and unique ties between Muslims and Christians in Egypt.
Pope Tawadros said that solidarity and unity among Egyptians, especially on holiday celebrations, has become a constant value of the Egyptian society.
