Egypt: Tayyeb: Messages of Azhar, Arab Parliament, Congruent

There is congruence between the message of Al-Azhar and that of the Arab parliament at both the Arab and Islamic levels, Al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayyeb said on Monday 18/2/2013.

"Both of them speak about an Islamic, Arab voice," added Tayyeb during talks with speaker of the Arab parliament Ahmed al-Jarwan.

The Arab parliament is tasked with general Arab issues, but other parliaments are in charge of national files, he said.

Al-Azhar plays a pivotal role in achieving peace among Egyptians and spreading the culture of peace worldwide, added Tayyeb.
