Yaser Abd Allah, FJP representative in Zeitoun, was received well by the Church’s Priest, Father Augustinos Morris who welcomed the delegation and accepted the warm wishes. Abd Allah stated: “The party’s visit was not only to extend warm wishes but to confirm that the party advocates national unity between Muslims and Copts in Egypt”. He added: “For sure this visit will be the first of many interactions between the FJP and the Church here in the Zeitoun district”.
For his part, Hamza Daheesh from the FJP delegation, pointed out that numerous topics were touched.
