Sheikh of Al-Azhar: Custodian of Two Holy Mosques is Keen on Cooperation against Challenges Facing Arabs and Muslims

Riyadh, Sheikh of Al-Azhar Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb has extended thanks to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for the generosity accorded to him during his recently-concluded official visit to Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, pointing out that his meeting with the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques affirmed the monarch's great love for Egypt and his keenness on permanent relations between the two sisterly countries, noting that the continuous cooperation between them should be increased to face the challenges against the Arab and Islamic nations.

This came during a press statement following the dinner banquet hosted by the Minister of Islamic Affairs, Call and Guidance at the Intercontinental Hotel in Riyadh in honor of Sheikh of Al-Azhar and his accompanying delegation, which was attended by the General Mufti of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, President of Senior Scholars Council and General President of Religious Research and Ifta Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al Al-Sheikh and a number of ministers, sheikhs and heads of courts.

Sheikh Dr. Al-Tayeb affirmed that Al-Azhar, Egypt and the Arab and Islamic nations support the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against the decision issued recently by the US Senate against the Kingdom, affirming that "we will never allow any penetration that could affect this strong and solid relationship between the Kingdom and Egypt at any level."
