Mirtajoddini Hails Iranian President for Visiting Al-Azhar University of Egypt

Several months ago, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad paid a visit to Egypt. During his five day trip, Iranian president also visited Al-Azhar University of Cairo. Al-Azhar is the centre of Islamic learning in the Middle East region. In that time, Salafis of Egypt expressed their furiousness toward Ahmadinejad and his policies against Syrian people.

Iran’s vice president, Mohammad Reza Mirtajoddini, said on Wednesday that Ahmadinejad’s visit to Al-Azhar University was important for Islam world. “Iran and Egypt are the leading Muslim countries in region. The two countries must work out with each other to increase their mutual partnerships in different fields.”

“Ahmadinejad’s smart move was reflected in almost all international news agencies. This literally shows the important of his trip to Cairo and visiting Al-Azhar University. Ahmadinejad also participated in internal seminars of Al-Azhar, and talked with a number of theoreticians of Arab world.” Mohammad Reza Mirtajoddini told a press-conference.

“However, in that time local Salafis of Egypt announced their angriness. But, Iran and Egypt must pay costs for their possible relationships in coming years.” Mirtajoddini added. Iran and Egypt had not any established ties during the last 30 years.

Mirtajoddini also called on Shia seminaries of Qom and Najaf to establish constructive relationships with Al-Azhar University of Egypt. “By establishing ties with Al-Azhar University, Shia Marja’s will be able to exchange their opinions with their Sunni counterparts.”

It’s worth mentioning that Al-Azhar University is associated with Al-Azhar Mosque in Islamic Cairo. The university’s mission includes the propagation of Islamic religion and culture.
