Ahmad al-Tayyeb, Egyptian Mufti announced that a group of Islamic and Christian clerics are to gather to form a committee aiming at verifying and solving the concerns of the Muslims and Christians and also handling the differences between the followers of the religions.
Calling the commission a joint voice of Al-azhar and Church, Ahmad al-Tayyeb said that the group's aim is to focus on tolerance of Islam and Christianity.
