Al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el Tayyeb affirmed on Sunday Al-Azhar's readiness for boosting cultural and scientific cooperation with the Netherlands.
During a meeting with Egypt's newly-appointed Ambassador in Amsterdam Hatem Abdel Qader, Tayyeb noted that the Al-Azhar academy for training imams and preachers is ready for training imams to address the contemporary issues.
Al-Azhar received more than 40 students from the Netherlands in 2020, the grand imam said, wishing that the number would increase.
Meanwhile, Abdel Qader said he will work on enhancing cultural and scientific ties between Al-Azhar and the Netherlands to benefit from its expertise and moderate speech that bolster peaceful existence and citizenship. (MENA)
