Bishop Marqus of Shubrā al-Khaymah, responsible for the media committee in the Orthodox Church, said to al-Shurūq al-Jadīd  that he was chosen in the delegation traveling to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

"This visit is first of its kind for a Christian cleric, " said Bishop Marqus.

Also chosen in the delegation is Dr. Safwat al-Bayādī, head of the Evangelical Church in Egypt, who described the visit as "historical". He added that the goal of the visit is not to interfere in the judicial verdicts of Saudi Arabia but to stress on the depth of the historical relations between the two countries.
