Egypt – Working meeting with the Grand Mufti of Egypt (Paris, April 22, 2015)


Dr. Shawqi Allam, Grand Mufti of Egypt, is conducting his first visit to France from April 21 to 25.

On this occasion, he was received at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development on April 22. His visit to France will also provide an opportunity for meetings with the Prime Minister’s Office and the departments of the Ministry of the Interior, as well as with the France-Egypt Friendship Groups in the National Assembly and the Senate.

France enjoys long-standing, trusting relations with the Egyptian Muslim religious authorities and with Al Azhar University, with which it exchanges ideas, notably with respect to the fight against radicalization and the training of Imams.
