He said that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s visit to the cathedral every year to congratulate Egyptians for Christmas represents a high-value.

“No matter what crisis, problems, or difficult circumstances we face, thanks to Almighty God, as long as we stand together, things will pass, and difficult conditions will come to an end,” Sisi said.
