Egyptian Muslim leader rejects meeting with VP Pence over Jerusalem

CAIRO – One of Egypt's top Muslim leaders, the Imam of Al Azhar mosque, rejected a meeting requested by Vice President Mike Pence in protest against a US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Al Azhar said in a statement on Friday.


Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb had rejected a request from the United States for Pence to meet him on Dec. 20 at Al Azhar saying President Donald Trump must reverse his decision on Jerusalem.
