Pope says his Cairo visit is about unity and brotherhood

(Vatican Radio) Speaking to journalists travelling with him to Egypt, Pope Francis on Friday described his 27-hour visit to Cairo as a journey of unity and brotherhood.

In his brief remarks, the Pope spoke of how this trip to Cairo had a special character because it followed an invitation (to visit Egypt) made by four different people: the Egyptian head of State, President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, the Orthodox Patriarch of the Copts, Pope Tawadros II, the Catholic Patriarch of the Copts, Ibrahim Sedrak and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb.
