Egypt's Mufti delivers a speech for first time before members of UK House of Lords
Egypt's Grand Mufti, Dr. Shawky Allam arrived Britain on Sunday at an official invitation from the UK Parliament.
Dr. Allam was received by members of the Egyptian Embassy in London and delegations from the British Home Office, and the British authorities organized a high-level security procession to secure his movements in the British capital.
He will deliver a speech before the House of Commons and the House of Lords at the beginning of his visit.
The speech will be the first of its kind, following a successful virtual meeting with members of the two houses last year.
In pre-departure statements, Shawky said that he will meet with a number of senior UK officials and the London mayor.
He will also deliver a number of lectures and seminars in several forums and British research centers.
