In an address to the opening session of the international conference on Iftaa on Monday, delivered on his behalf by Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat, the premier said Egypt’s Dar Al Iftaa and the secretariat for Fatwa Authorities Worldwide have – well – benefited from this phase in the history of the homeland.

The chance was available to all institutions in the state to accomplish their mission, given good plans of action and clear vision, he added.
