Egypt strategic ally of Iraq: Al-Hakim

Baghdad – Leader of the National Iraqi Alliance Ammar al-Hakim has called Egypt a strategic ally of Iraq.
Baghdad is keen on building economic partnership with Cairo, Hakim said in an interview with Extra News Channel.
He made it clear that terrorism is a combined phenomenon and cannot possibly be narrowed down to just one element. Extremism is yet another big threat to Islam in particular, Hakim said.
Talking about the conflict in his country, he said it has to some extent taken a sectarian turn, noting that terrorists have been acting to foment this tension. 
According to Hakim, a national settlement is the optimal solution to a post-Daesh stage. Iraq is against any foreign interference in its domestic affairs, he stressed.

The pope will visit the Azhar Sheikhdom for talks with Grand Imam Sheikh Ahmed Tayyeb, Presidential Spokesman Alaa Youssef said.
The Vatican pope will also visit Saint Mark’s Cathedral for talks with Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria and Patriarch of Saint Mark Diocese, the spokesman said.
Youssef said Egypt welcomes the Vatican pope’s visit which will send a message of peace, entrench the values of forgiveness and dialogue and renounce terror and fanaticism.

The spokesman said the president highly appreciates the pope and his courageous stances vis-à-vis international issues.
He added that the president welcomes the pope’s visit to Egypt on the 70th anniversary of establishing the Egyptian-Vatican diplomatic ties.

Last month, the Vatican’s point man on Muslim relations, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, participated in a conference at Al-Azhar focused on how Muslim and Catholic leaders can work to counter fanaticism, extremism and violence in the name of religion.

Al-Azhar’s grand imam has a reputation as a moderate who seeks better relations and understanding with the Roman Catholic Church. He frequently meets with Tawadros and leaders of the smaller Egyptian church denominations.
