Al-Azhar-Vatican dialogue committee convenes Saturday in Cairo

The joint dialogue committee set up by Al-Azhar and the Vatican resumes its annual meeting Saturday 24/02/2007.

Abdullah el-Naggar, member of Al-Azhar’s Islamic Research Academy, said the meeting will focus on blasphemy and how to confront those who are trying to pit Muslims against Christians.

"Tolerance and unity are high on the agenda," el-Naggar, who represents Al-Azhar in the meeting, said.

The committee convenes twice a year in Cairo and the Vatican to discuss inter-faith dialogue
