The delegation, comprising pastors and members of the two churches, gifted a copy of the Holy Quran to the head of the city’s Awqaf (endowment) department during the ceremony.
Their participation at the event was meant to send a message of fraternity and unity among Egyptians, they said, according to al-Masry al-Youm website.
The head of the Awqaf department hailed the Christian’s presence in the launch of the mosque and said it shows all Egyptians are united.
Egypt is a country in North Africa with a population of around 100 million.
Muslims account for around 90 percent of the country’s total population and about ten percent of the population is Christian.
