MENA , Sunday 19 Jan 2020

Egypt's Al Azhar is keen on staying in touch with all religious institutions all over the world as part of its goal to establish peace and security, Al Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayyeb said Sunday.

El-Tayyeb’s remarks came during his meeting with Archbishop of York in Britain John Sentamu, currently on a visit to Egypt at an invitation of Bishop Mounir Hanna of the Episcopal Church in Egypt, North Africa, and the Horn of Africa.

Egypt’s top Sunni cleric said that Al Azhar is counting on the religious leaders worldwide to fix what has been spoiled by conflicts and wars. 

For his part, Sentamu appreciated Tayyeb’s vision, aimed at figuring out a moderate approach that could group believers of all divine religions under the humanity concept.
