United Kingdom’s Prince Charles has met with Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the Head of Sunni Islam’s Al-Azhar institution in Cairo on a mission centred on inter-faith co-existence and the battle against Climate Change.
Prince Charles, accompanied by his wife Camilla, held talks with the President, Al-Azhar’s grand Imam, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, and Samy Fawzi, the Anglican Archbishop of the coastal city of Alexandria in northern Egypt.
The royal couple’s visit is a two-day visit on the second leg of a regional tour.
A reception was held for the couple at the Great Pyramid of Giza late on Thursday, after which the couple are expected to travel to Alexandria, which is at the frontline of climate change.
Following the recently concluded COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, Egypt is to host the next round of the UN Climate Summit in its Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in 2022.
