His Eminence Prof. Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar and the Chairman of the Muslim Council of Elders, received Mr. António Guterres, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, accompanied by Mr. Philippe Lazzarini, the Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), and Ms. Elena Panova, the UN Resident Coordinator in Egypt. The two parties discussed the latest developments in Gaza.

His Eminence the Grand Imam warmly welcomed Mr. António Guterres, commending his courageous stances in supporting the Palestinian cause and promoting justice and human rights in Gaza. He also praised Mr. Guterres's clear positions in warning the world of the dangers of this aggression, as well as the significant efforts of the UNRWA towards refugees fleeing the aggression's flames.

His Eminence Sheikh Al-Tayeb remarked, "We have closely followed your brave actions and fair statements in various international gatherings, as well as the pressures and difficult situations you have encountered while advocating for justice and the Palestinian cause. I want to assure you that we, at Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, including scholars, professors, students, and affiliates, support your stances and will not waver in our support. We understand that you feel the pain and sorrow that we feel, and our only recourse is to rely on God, Almighty. Through your actions and those of leaders and wise individuals like you, you serve as a beacon of hope for protecting the weak and oppressed in Gaza."
