Speaking to representatives of student unions on Wednesday, Tayeb said the Al-Azhar addresses terrorism through convoys in various governorates in cooperation with the Ministry of Endowments, and through revising the curricula of its schools and universities. “The convoys call for supporting the roadmap,” he said.
 
He also said the Al-Azhar is coming up with new proposals for the committee that is conducting dialogue with the Vatican. “Europe should hear the voice of the correct Islam,” he said.
