Article full text: 

Church sources have revealed to Rose al-Yūsuf the pope’s explicit orders to all expatriate Coptic bishops and priests not to participate in any demonstrations organized by any Coptic organizations abroad that could deform the image of Egypt. Furthermore, Bishop Yū’annis, the pope’s secretary, met some expatriate Coptic activists and requested them not to be attracted by any ideas promoted by some organizations which have their own interest in attacking Egypt and its government. He added: "Receive Egypt’s leaders hospitably and do not embarrass the church".
