JEDDAH: The secretary-general of the Muslim World League (MWL), Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, received in Riyadh on Wednesday Egypt's Coptic Bishop Morcos.

During the meeting, the two sides discussed a number of issues of common interest.

The meeting was attended by members of the Egyptian Embassy in Saudi Arabia.

On Monday, Al-Issa received a Lebanese Druze delegation led by Sheikh Ghassan Al-Halaby.

Both sides discussed unifying Islamic efforts to confront conflicts and strife, saying Muslim unity serves the interests of all parties, and consolidates the values of tolerance and cooperation.

Earlier, the MWL has condemned all attempts to target Saudi Arabia's international and Islamic leading position through suggesting economic sanctions, political pressure, and false accusations.

The league stressed that the Kingdom has a long history in international peace and cooperation, confirming its leading position in many fields that serve international peace.

The Supreme Council of the MWL also said that the Kingdom's stability and security are a red line for the Muslim world.

Al-Issa stressed that the MWL focuses on fostering understanding and a culture of cooperation, tolerance and civilized communication.
