     During his visit to the observatory, ambassador Noki affirmed that Al-Azhar is making quite genuine and serious efforts to spread and strengthen the correct image of Islam, stressing that his visit to the Observatory was designed to know more about the vision and mechanisms operated by the Observatory amid the escalation of extremist campaigns that lead people to misunderstand Islam, a matter that resulted in many tragedies around the world, some of their victims were from Japan, according to Noki.
