Pope Francis urged tolerance and denounced demagogic, populism and violence committed in God's name on Friday, as he visited Egypt to promote dialogue with Muslims and support its embattled Christian minority. His visit comes as Egypt's Coptic Christians reel from a series of terrorist suicide bombings in December and April that killed dozens of worshippers. Francis is scheduled to visit the Cairo church bombed in December alongside Coptic Pope Tawadros II. The 80-year-old pontiff landed in Cairo earlier on Friday before meeting President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and then Al-Azhar's Grand Imam Ahmed al-Tayeb, one of the Muslim world's leading authorities. Sisi, a former army chief criticized for rights abuses, welcomed Francis at his palace with a military brass band and priests lining up to greet the head of the world's 1.3 billion Catholics. More»

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ratified late Thursday night a new judicial authority law, Al-Ahram Arabic website reported. The new bill has been published in the official state journal. According to the new law, the Egyptian president has the right to choose the heads of Egypt’s judicial bodies out of three nominees proposed from within each body. The Egyptian House of Representative passed the law on Wednesday after it was approved by two-thirds of parliament, despite complete rejection to the law by judges’ clubs, which function similarly to unions, across the country.

Pope Francis, making a two-day visit to Egypt, urged Muslim leaders on Friday to unite in renouncing religious extremism at a time when Islamist militants are targeting ancient Christian communities across the Middle East.Francis's trip, aimed at improving Christian-Muslim ties, comes just three weeks after Islamic State (ISIS) suicide bombers killed at least 45 people in two Egyptian churches. "Let us say once more a firm and clear 'No!' to every form of violence, vengeance and hatred carried out in the name of religion or in the name of God," the pope told a peace conference at Egypt's highest Islamic authority, Al-Azhar. "Together let us affirm the incompatibility of violence and faith, belief and hatred," he said at the 1,000-year-old Sunni Muslim seat of learning. More»

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has said his administration is not interfering with the judicial and parliamentary review of a controversial deal to transfer two Red Sea islands under Egyptian control to Saudi Arabia. Speaking at a youth conference on Wednesday, the president said he would never compromise his country's interests to court others, in reference to criticism that his government had sold the strategic islands in return for the financial backing of Saudi Arabia. "I cannot compliment others at the expense of even a metre of our lands," the president told a crowd of around a thousand young people in the Suez Canal city of Ismailiya, according to state news agency MENA. "The matter is being addressed before the parliament and judiciary; we do not interfere," he further added. More»

Arab tourism influx to Egypt during the past year accounted for 36.3 percent of the total traffic of 5.3 million tourists, according to Egyptian Minister of Tourism Yehia Rashed. He added that Saudi Arabia was the top Arab country in terms of number of tourists to Egypt, with 507,000 tourists, followed by Jordan with 180,000, Kuwait with 150,000, and then Lebanon with 86,000 tourists. Rashed said in a statement obtained by Daily News Egypt that the total number of Arab tourists in 2016 amounted to 2 million tourists, up from 1.7 million in 2017—an increase of 17.6 percent. The first quarter of 2017 witnessed an increase of 38.8 percent in the number of Arab tourists compared to the same period last year, according to Rashed, expecting tourism to recover during the current year. The Ministry of Tourism and the Egyptian Tourism Authority are successfully participating in the Arabian Travel Market exhibition held between 24 and 27 April. Rashed said that the ministry’s participation in the exhibition aims at enhancing cooperation with the partners in the region and reinforcing efforts to attract Arab tourists, noting that Arab tourism is extremely important to Egypt. He added that Egypt is always keen to provide attractive factors for the Arab tourist, the most important of which is facilitating entry and visa procedures and motivating aviation from Arab countries. The minister explained that work is now underway to facilitate the entry of companions accompanying tourists arriving from the Arab Gulf countries, next to facilitating the receipt of visas at ports of access for tourist groups coming from the Arab Maghreb countries. This year, the Egyptian booth reviews the Egyptian tourists’ destination that can satisfy all tastes, with a focus on cultural, religious, and therapeutic destinations, including the “Path of the Holy Family” destinations, which was revived by developing the sites on the Holy Family’s route. The ministry has already developed 8 out of the 25 points on the route. The eight archeological sites include the Church of Abu Sarja, the Hanging Church in Old Cairo, the Church of the Virgin in Maadi, the three monasteries of Wadi Al Natroun, the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Bird, the Muharraq Monastery, and the Holy Virgin Mary Monastery in Assiut. The development is being carried out in coordination with the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Antiquities, and the Coptic and Catholic churches. Head of the Egyptian Tourism Authority Hisham El-Demery said that Egypt aims to highlight therapeutic tourism through its participation in the exhibition, adding that a law is now being prepared to regulate that. In the field of therapeutic tourism, the Helwan Sulfuric Centre for Rheumatism and Physiotherapy has been very important, next to the Bahariya Oasis and Siwa Oasis with their mineral water springs.

Egypt has said recent airstrikes by Turkey against suspected Kurdish rebel positions in northern Iraq are an "unacceptable encroachment" on the Iraqi sovereignty and lands. In a statement on Thursday, the foreign ministry slammed the strikes as an "unjustified, evil assault that would make the regional situation more complex and undermine counter-terrorism efforts." On Tuesday, Turkish war planes hit Kurdish forces in neighbouring Iraq in what Ankara described as "terrorist havens" and also carried out strikes on Kurdish militia forces in Syria. The strikes killed more than two dozen Kurdish fighters in Iraq and Syria, Reuters quoted sources on the ground as saying. The Turkish army claimed that 70 militants were killed. More»

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said Wednesday that his strategic goal is to preserve the existence of the Egyptian state. Sisi's statements came in a speech during the second day of this month’s youth conference, which kicked off in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia on Tuesday. Addressing the youth of Egypt, President Sisi said that the country's institutions are suffering from flaws on all levels which need to be faced “honestly.” "We have witnessed setbacks for several years, and we meet periodically to discuss and face our problems honestly," Sisi said. On Tuesday, Sisi hailed the country's youths and "martyrs" in front of a crowd of some 1,000 young people at the opening ceremony of the three-day gathering, which was broadcast live on national television. The president said that the current troubles faced by Egypt, including its suffering economy and the threat of terrorism, are temporary. "Egyptians must know that what will protect the nation is not the army or the police, but the awareness and unity of our people," he said. Sisi also said that the Egyptian army’s role in carrying out development is equal to that of all the country's other institutions. Sisi said that a number of “wrong policies” adopted over the past 50 years, which his government is now trying to correct, have resulted in a shrinking middle class and the country’s current economic situation. The president said that previous governments avoided “decisive measures to build a strong nation,” adding that these policies have led to a lack of awareness regarding Egypt’s “real problems.” Egypt's third national youth conference sessions and workshops began on Wednesday and are planned to address issues including a recent surge in the price of foodstuffs, the government's efforts to improve the healthcare system, and sustainable energy development. This is the third time Sisi has attended the monthly youth conference, which started in December. The decision to hold the monthly youth conference was announced by the president in October during the first annual National Youth Conference. In January, the second regular youth conference was held in Aswan and tackled challenges facing Upper Egypt, including ways to develop the economy and tourism in the region as well as the social and political empowerment of the youth. Some 1,300 young people from Upper Egyptian governorates took part in that event.

Roman Catholic Pope Francis delivered on Tuesday a televised speech addressing the Egyptian people ahead of his upcoming two-day visit to the country on Friday; the first visit by a Roman Catholic pope since his predecessor John Paul II visited Cairo in 2000. Pope Francis started his speech with the traditional Islamic greeting As-Salamu Alaykum (Peace be upon you), saying he is truly happy to visit as a friend, a messenger of peace, and a pilgrim to the country that over two thousand years ago offered refuge and hospitality to the Holy Family as they fled the tyranny of King Herod. "With a heart full of joy and gratitude I will soon visit your beloved country, the cradle of civilisation, the gift of the Nile, the land of sun and hospitality, the land where Patriarchs and Prophets lived, and where God, Benevolent and Merciful, the Almighty and One God, made his voice heard," the pope said.

The two church bombings that killed dozens in Egypt this month targeted unity among Muslims and Christians in the most populous Arab nation, Coptic Pope Tawadros II said Tuesday. Suicide bombers from the Islamic State group attacked two churches in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria on April 9, killing 45 people in the deadliest attacks on Coptic Christians in recent memory. The attacks which hit on Palm Sunday "were not aimed at Copts only but at the heart of Egypt... They aimed at breaking the unity of Egyptians," the Tawadros told a news conference in Kuwait City.
