Egyptian University Invites Iran to Attend Counter-Terrorism Conference

Egyptian University Invites Iran to Attend Counter-Terrorism Conference
World  -  The vice chancellor of Al-Azhar University, Abbas Showman, announced that the university has invited Iran to participate in a conference on “fight against terrorism” due to be held in Cairo on Tuesday and Wednesday.


“120 countries have been invited to the conference and Iran is one of the most prominent guests,” Showman said.

The conference will be held from December 2 to 3 and representatives from Shiite and Sunni Muslims as well as Sabians plan to take part in the gathering, Showman was quoted by Al-Alam Arabic language news network.

Showman emphasized that the conference is not a political gathering and will be held at the initiative of Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar.

Last Sunday, hundreds of Muslim scholars from various sects, including Shiites and Sunnis, and from 83 countries gathered in Iran’s holy city of Qom to take part in an international conference on dangers of Takfirism (extremism).

The conference was aimed at countering threats imposed by Takfiri groups and boosting for peace, friendship, brotherhood and interaction among different Islamic sects.
